This is not an official Russian salad... I call it my "tastes like Russia" salad. There are as many salads in Russia as there are creative cooks. Oh, there are some standard not to be missed salads like the Olivier, which every Russian woman knows how to make. But, there are also new ones cropping up in the deli sections of the European supermarkets. We used to go into Tabris just to see what new combinations they had come up with.
I decided to use red cabbage, apples, tomatoes, feta cheese and cashews. And of course a huge dollop of mayo for the dressing. I almost ate the whole bowl by myself. It really did taste like Russia to me!
