I am russian, and I LOVE this salad! My mom actually made this 2 days ago. Instead of the hotdogs either use boiled chicken breasts (my favorite way) or Bologna cut into small pieces. Also add boiled carrots, which you can cook in the same pot as the potatoes. We also add some dill for color and flavor. You can use green onion or regular onion. Cut the potatoes when they are still hot/warm and put the mayo in as you cut them, while they are warm. This makes the salad creamier and better tasting! Enjoy!
We are Ukrainian and we eat this all the time. It's actually a tradition to have it on the table for all family get togethers and parties. We add finely chopped cooked carrots dill and we like to use chopped salami or smoked turkey thighs. I also add about 2 T of the pickle juice to it to give it some zip. You can also use 1T of vineger to it. We also like it with loads of fresh ground pepper. This is a great dish and you can play with it to suite your tastes.
Make sure you chop everything finely and in this order: potatoes hot dogs pickles scalions then add peas and grated eggs. 1 cup of mayo is for the whole salad so dress your individual servings with as much mayo as you desire. enjoy:)
I am Bulgarian and this Russian salad is a favourite dish for parties and holidays in my coutry. We usually add pickled carrots and if you use ham it will be even more delicious. Once you try it you can't get enough of it!
Wow! This recipe is delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and the salad came out WONDERFUL. The ingredients blend together perfectly and I ate almost the whole bowl myself! Thanks for a delicious recipe.:)
I've made this salad so many times I lost count. It's great for parties and to give an alternative to the traditional potato salads around. I've added some finely chopped granny smith apples to the salad and it adds a little bit of acidity and crunch. Always get ravings about the "pea salad" as we call it.
This was a very unique potato salad and a very nice change from the norm. I'd truly rate it about a 3 1/2.
July '07 update:
I've made this several more times and we really like it. I would say it is definitely a "4" now. I modified it a bit and we like it better. I don't add the onions (we don't like them.) Also, rather than use all dill pickles, I used about 2 1/2 dill pickles chopped up and the same amount of bread and butter pickles chopped up.
