Summer Russian Salad

I mentioned the other day that my arm was not doing well, I was feeling better yesterday but not enough to cook a normal meal.ย  The easiest dish to make was a salad and this one is my hubbyโ€™s favorite andddddd this is also one of my mother โ€“ in โ€“ laws recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I remember when she was still hosting parties that everyone use to jump right into this salad first!ย  I couldnโ€™t understand why but it was always the first dish to go.ย ย 

Chopping the potatoes and pickles were a challenge, it took me a quite a while to get it done but for the rest of the ingredients I just picked up a package of frozen peas and carrots and added into the potatoes to boil.ย  I just wanted to emphasize that for this recipe after boiling the veggies they need to be drain from excess water all night long.ย  I asked my mother in law what was the reason for draining it all night long and she responded with โ€œIt seems to me that it just tastes betterโ€ hahahahaโ€ฆit really is up to you if you want to wait to eat it the following day. But to be honest I have been doing this step for years and I think she just might have a point. ๐Ÿ™‚





4 cups Potatoes (boiled and cubed)

4 cups Mayonaisse

1 cup Pickles (chopped into small pieces)

1/4 cup Capers

3 cups Carrots (chopped)

1 cup Peas (frozen)

1/2 cup Vegetable Stock

1 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard






Cut potatoes into small pieces and add into a pot filled with salted water.


Add Carrots and Peas into pot along with vegetable stock and boil for 20 minutes.ย 



Once veggies have drained place into a bowl.


Add Pickles


and Capers, continue by mixing up the veggies.


In a large bowl add the Mayo along withย  a teaspoon of Dijon Mustard and beat.


I do hope you enjoy this salad as much as we doโ€ฆHave a great weekend everyone!!ย
