This recipe was the favorite of the Russian dishes served at our wedding. Simple, tangy and can be used more than a side dish. Serve on top of bread or crackers, or spoon onto tomato slices for a more low-carb option.

Love it! I wouldn't call it a salad though, it's a spread. I suggest gouda instead of mozzarella, that's how it's made in Russia. Read More

try gouda instead - this is what we originally put in there:gives more taste to it. Read More

Suprisingly good. I cut up french bread put a slice of roma tomato and piled the cheese salad on top. Loved it! Read More

I have lived in Russia for almost 13 yrs now- and this is one of my favorites! One change is needed - Gouda cheese! This is perfect as spread on bread - with soup! Read More

We love garlic but as written this is just way too much. I prefer to use either roasted garlic - the flavor is MUCH more mellow/ less mouth-burning - or at a pinch garlic powder. I like to toast slices of crusty bread spread them with the cheese mixture and then broil. I haven't tried it with tomato but I bet that would taste great too. Thanks! Read More

Quite authentic though as mentioned above it is usually made with sharper & harder cheeses. Sometimes a little shredded carrot is added (about 1/3 cup). Makes it more colorful and adds a nice crunch. Read More

I made this the night before serving and it gave time for the flavors to blend. It was a really flavorful and wonderful part of our dinner served on rye bread with other assorted meats and cheeses. Read More

I agree with the other viewer to add garlic powder because the intensity of the minced uncooked garlic was a bit much. Everyone thought it was great and couldn't believe it was made with so few ingredients. Read More
