The flavour and texture of the Russian Salad is quite different from the standard salads, as it uses parboiled veggies rather than raw ones.

When cooking the veggies, ensure that you do not overcook them – because the vibrant colours and crispness of the vegetables have to be retained.

Combining such perfectly cooked veggies with canned pineapple gives the salad a sweet and tangy flavour, while dressing it in mayonnaise and fresh cream adds to its lusciousness.

Serve this salad chilled, to enhance the flavour and crunch. Just top the salad on a slice of Brown Bread and enjoy accompanied with a bowl of Lentil, Tomato and Spinach Soup .

Hi, what can I use instead of fresh cream? Can I replace fresh cream with heavy whipped cream !? Thanks

Tarla Dalal    Hi, Whipped cream will not go well with this salad. Instead of fresh cream, you can use hung curds.Do try it and share your review with us.
