DSC_8167

I know i have been bad with posting new recipes this last month.. my uncle passed away so its been really tough for our family… Thank you for your patience.

If you guys have never tried this salad I am super excited for you to do so! Its definitely a unique salad that is delicious and different than your typical salads. This salad is very similar to  “shuba” but it doesn’t have the fish in it, its only vegetables. (not a fan of fish in my salads ;) Also my mom made it this way as long as i can remember :)

If your not Russian this salad probably looks very interesting to you but i promise you guys its fantastic, its absolutely delicious. Make sure you top it off with pomegranate it gives this salad a nice crunch and flavor to it.. Its a must for me :)

This salad works very well for potluck parties or just dinner at home and even with just a slice of bread! mmmmmmmmm :) Read more…

Creamy Garlic Beet Salad/Spread

Creamy Garlic Beet Salad/Spread

In yesterdays post i mentioned it was a gloomy day, and suddenly a couple hours later all the clouds went away and the sunshine came out. So I was excited to photograph a couple recipes for you guys since natural lighting is best for photos :) And I’m no professional photographer I have no gear just a camera and  girl on a mission to capture nice photos of my recipes for you guys.

So today I’m sharing another Russian recipe! It can be used as salad or a spread. When making this salad you can put less or more garlic/mayo. Normally I put a couple garlic’s in and taste it to see if its enough. In this recipe you really wanna taste the garlic. It gives it that nice kick!

Russian Beet Spread

Russian Beet Spread

I am so addicted to this Russian spread! Each time i make it I’m eating it all day long. If you love beets you will absolutely love this recipe. Its so simple, only 3 ingredients. All you gotta do is saute each vegetable separately and enjoy it on some toasted or fresh bread!

The spread is good when its fresh and hot and also really good the next few days straight from the refrigerator and a warm slice of bread! You guys are gonna love it :)

Also for the ingredients make sure you have the same amount of each once they are shredded at chopped, it depends on what sizes you use if it will be the same amount of mine. Read more…
