Russian Salad (Serbian= Руска салата/ Ruska Salata)

I am deliberately putting this post right after the soup. The reason for this is that most of the ingredients come from the soup. Most people think that soups are made out of left over food scraps, however, there is a tasty spread/ appetizer that you can make out of soup scraps.


3-4 cooked potatoes
2 cooked carrots
6 shredded cooked drumsticks or thighs
1 cup finely chopped pickles
1/2 cup peas
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard

This is very easy to make, you just need to do a lot of chopping. The measures that I suggest can be modified depending on what you can find in your soup.

Chop all the ingredients finely and mix together. Cover with a layer of Mayo on top. You may also decorate the top with slices carrots and pickles. Serve with fresh french bread or crackers.
