About this recipe: A traditional Russian salmon salad that's typically served at large gatherings. It's super easy to prepare and tastes absolutely delicious. It can be served as a meal on its own, a side dish or as an appetiser.
I am Russian and indeed this salad is very popular in my country. But there are couple of things we do differently: we grate potatoes and eggs after they are boiled, first goes salmon, then potatoes, whites, then yolks. Mayo between each layer and no mayo on the top! In my family we also add boiled and grated carrots on top of the salmon (by the way, i prefer to canned in oil - it's juicier). Some families also put steamed rice in between. This salad is called "mimoza". - 05 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is very good! My mom is russian and she makes this salad with tuna, plus she adds some grated cheese layer to it, but it's also very good with salmon! - 27 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is so good. I actually used 5 eggs, so that eggs would cover the whole layer of potatoes, without potatoes being visible. The only thing I would probably change is adding some salt and pepper over potatoes for a little more to it. thank you JMRIBKA. I'll be looking at your other recipes. - 11 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
