    Crab Sticks Salad with Pickled Mushrooms and Apple

    I didn’t post salad recipes for a while now, so wanted to come up with something special this time.

    I chose salad made of surimi crab sticks mixed with tender pickled mushrooms, grated apple, fresh dill and parsley and dressed with ground black pepper and a bit of mayo.

    This mix may seem unusual (especially here in US), however it is very popular in post-USSR countries. You can find it under name “Salad Anshlag” in menus.

    Some people use boiled mushrooms for this recipe, however I prefer mushrooms pickled following this recipe: they are very easy to do and are less plain than just boiled; but this is a matter of preference.

    Ingredients:


    How to prepare, step-by-step:

    1. Prepare ingredients: boil eggs on hard, rinse greens, if you don’t like pickled mushrooms they can be replaced with 1lb of fresh mushrooms cleaned and boiled in slightly salted water:
