It is even better with diced (baked & chilled) chicken instead of bologna or 50x50! It is better to use ZerGut Russian style Dills Pickles and Hellmann's Real (not Light!) mayonnaise or Russian mayonnaise like "Chumak" etc. Read More

This was okay but a bit on the bland side for me. Perhaps more mayonnaise would help, or including the balogna (I went without because it was labeled optional). For me the flavors also didn't harmonize great. Read More

It is delicious my whole family enjoyed it. I switched rotisserie chicken for the bologna because that is what I had and it turned out great. Also added a dash of cumin just because. We've had it on its own with bread as a sandwich or with crackers and even with tortilla! Great snack! Read More

Delicious! A taste of Russian Christmas! A bit of dill goes a long way if you're looking to augment this recipe. Read More

Love this recipe!!! Per other reviews I added some dill to taste and subbed cubed ham for the bologna. I also don't care for canned peas so I subbed frozen sweet peas and omitted the boiled eggs. Eggs are hit and miss with me in potato salad. I'll try them next time though. My wife said it was the best potato salad she's ever had. Read More

I have loved this salad since I was a child when my mom made it on special occasions. I made it by following the recipe here and it is just as I remember it from when I was growing up. I also had leftover turkey breast that I added to the salad instead of ham. It is delicious! Read More
