Russian Salad Recipe | Flavour Diary

Salad!!!.... oohoo i was never found of salads as a kid and eating raw veggies was always stated as "ghass phoos"(i mean grassy things) . For me salad meant to be cutting some veggies like carrots, cucumber and onions and decorating on the plate...if possible have along with your dinner...hehe.. But after marriage , and i getting exposed to the culinary world in full stretch, i found out there is many more varieties of salad which were taster and healthier too..So now i can proudly say that i love salads. 
By the way this salad was introduced by my friend Nabby in London. She is very friendly and dear person to me just like my little sister.When i had it for first time i finished the box of salad all by my self... for dinner.. i mean no dinner only salad. Its just mouth watering. 
Its a combination of veggies and fruits of your choice. I found it to be great way of eating veggies and fruits. Its easy to make, no stress, no fuss and delicious to have it at any time of the day...yum yum...just boil your veggies, chop your fruits and mix rest of the ingredients...tada... your salad is ready..isn't it easy... Serve cool....

I always make this for small gathering and it is loved by everyone. Its a great party food, you can make a day before the party and keep it in the fridge and it is always a great hit in the party. With all this blah blah .... about the dish... you may surely wanna try out... so here is the process....
