Liver, Carrot and Egg Salad

January 2nd, 2016 in Salads by Julia Volhina

Unusually tasting salad for a celebratory table or if you want to add a bit more liver in your diet (for example to consume more iron or other nutrients it is reach on).

As title says, fried liver is the base of the salad, accompanied by fried carrots and onions and boiled eggs. Probably it is not the lightest of the salads other there, but again, rich in nutrients and pretty filling.

Ingredients of the salad can be cooked and mixed together in advance, store them in the fridge and then add mayo 20-30 mins before serving it.

Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style Carrots

August 16th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

Yet another one chicken salad to be added to my list of recipes: tender chicken meat, boiled eggs, tasty cucumbers and spicy carrots prepare in korean style.

This salad will work great as a side or appetizer, or as a lunch meal itself, especially if you need something to take with you. It can be served plain, in a sandwich or in a wrap.

Salad can be dressed with a mix of mayo and sour cream instead of the mayo alone, if you are looking for healthier option.

Shrimps, Mushroom and Rice Salad

June 21st, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This isn’t one of the recipes I usually cook, but it kind of puzzled me when I saw a recipe, so I had to try it.

It turned out pretty nice, somewhat unusual taste but quite interesting.

I used shrimps, presented in last week recipe this recipe, but I think store purchased pre-cooked shrimps will work well for it as well.

Ham, Pineapple and Peas Salad

April 5th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This salad has interesting combination of ingredients: sweet peas with pineapples and ham (or canadian bacon) mixed with lettuce.

Freshly boiled peas can be substituted for canned peas on this one, but canned ones are some what easier to find.

Assemble salad right before you plan to serve it, lettuce will not keep freshness and crispness for long after slicing.

Carrots, Raisins and Ginger Salad

March 22nd, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This is refreshing and somewhat spicy salad made with carrots, raisins and ginger.

It tastes great by itself, or with meat or poultry.

You can make salad more or less spicy by adjusting amount of ginger you use: more ginger will make more spicy salad.

Salad with Chicken and Fresh Vegetables

March 8th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

Spring is right around the corner. And even though nowadays you can buy fresh vegetables all year around, in spring they taste somehow special. Maybe this is a way how body let’s you know it needs to be replenished with vitamins.

This is why I am publishing this recipe for salad made of fresh bell peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes with boiled white chicken meat and a bit of cheese.

By the way, mayo in the dressing can be mixed with sour cream for skinnier version.

Shrimp, Egg and Potato Layered Salad

February 8th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina

This salad is often referred to as “Shrimps Under Fur Coat” salad, here two shrimp layers are dressed in layer of grated potatoes, eggs, mayo and topped with red caviar.

I know red caviar is not something people here buy and eat all that often, but if you decide to try this salad I suggest to get caviar from the local european or russian store.

This salad need some time to settle down after assembling, so prepare it at least 6 hours prior to serving.
