Korean Style CarrotsAugust 9th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Salads, Sides by Julia Volhina
Korean style carrots (“morkovka po-korejski”) is a popular in post-USSR countries dish which is usually served as salad, side dish or relish.
Often it is also served on hot dogs along with sausage inside the bun.
These pretty spicy carrots are great side for meats or poultry. They can also be used as one of ingredients for salads and other dishes.
Fruit Salad with YogurtAugust 2nd, 2014 in Desserts, Salads by Julia Volhina
Here is your step away from something usually called a dessert: fresh fruit salad dressed with plain yogurt.
No flour, no sugar, almost no fat (if you use low-fat yogurt); only fresh raw fruits loaded with vitamins and tons of good nutrients.
Besides being a dessert, this salad can be great choice for breakfast or lunch or just a snack when you need it.
You can mix and match fruits to your liking for this one. I used pineapples, banana, orange, apple, kiwi and pear. Mint is also optional and can be skipped it if you don’t like it.

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.
