Chicken Salad with Cucumbers and Korean Style CarrotsAugust 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 SaladJune 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 SaladApril 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.

Salad with Chicken and Fresh VegetablesMarch 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 SaladFebruary 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.
Shrimp, Lettuce and Egg Salad RecipeJanuary 4th, 2014 in Salads by Julia Volhina
This unusual combination of ingredients yields pretty interesting salad. And it tastes best then prepared right before serving.
Original recipe calls for 10 quail eggs, but I find them somehow hard to find here, so I used 2 chicken eggs as replacement.
Pineapples themselves are optional ingredient, you can skip on them if you wish so, but with them salad tastes more interesting.
