Summer Russian Salad

Since you are having such brilliant weather, you should all be having BBQ’s and eating lots of salads.

Please see below one of my family’s favorites.

Start by boiling 6 washed potatoes with the skin on,(once cooked, drain the water off and let them rest for 20 minutes to cool.)dice into medium sized pieces and place straight into the bowl.

Followed by boiling 4 eggs and dicing.

whilst they are boiling, cut up and place in a large salad bowl the following ingredients;

6 medium gherkins(dill pickles)diced
1 cucumber diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 cup of diced ham.

Once the potatoes have cooled add to the other ingredients and also the diced boiled eggs.

Add a bunch of fresh, finely cut dill, salt and pepper, and a good quality mayonnaise and combine gently.

This can be served as a starter/entree or served with BBQ chicken.

I like this with our Riesling or Semillon Sauvignon Blanc.
