Last week I traveled to Madrid. I was very surprised by the typical tapas offered at almost every restaurant - Ensaladilla Rusa. Although the salad served in Spain is a distant reminder of the very popular Russian salad, it inspired me to share the Russian recipe known by almost every woman in Russia. Please note, the original recipe is made with grouse and the typical salad in Russia is made with Russian-style bologna. However, I have found that my family enjoys this salad best when made with chicken. This salad is a typical centerpiece at any Russian New Year’s holiday party.
