POLISH VEGETABLE SALAD RECIPE



PolishCook   6 Dec 2005 /  #1
Ingredients

1/2 kg carrots,
2 parsnips,
1 small celery (about. 15 dkg),
1/2 kg potatoes,
2 pickled cucumbers,
1 can of green peas,
3 eggs,
1 apple,
1 bunch of green onions,
1/2 cup of mayonnaise,
salt, pepper, parsley, dill.

Rinse the vegetables and cook without peeling (each separately); cool and peel them. You could use vegetables from a chicken soup. Hard-boil the eggs, cool and peel them. Peel the apple and remove the core. Cut the vegetables, pickles, apple, and eggs into small squares. Chop the green onions and strain the peas. Add salt, pepper, and stir in mayonnaise. Chop the parsley and dill, and sprinkle over the salad. Set aside for one hour. Decorate with mayonnaise, green peas, and carrots.

Enjoy this Polish salad! (Very Popular not only in Poland).

Indeed! But don't even try to compare the home-made to the one bought in shops. I don't need to say which one is better :)

Beetroot and apple

Grate about 6 beetroot, and 3 cooking apples.
Grate rind of a lime. salt and pepper, mix all together in a baking pan with knobs of butter, cover with foil and bake in oven gas no 5 for an hour, lovely hot or cold.

My Dad (who was Polish) used to make this for us as children as its full of iron. enjoy

Thread attached on merging:
Salad recipe help....

Dzien Dobry,

I had the great pleasure of visiting Poland last October. (I'm from the US). While there, I loved the salads...There was a mixture of shredded carrots, cabbage, lettuce, etc.

Does anyone have the recipe for this mixture? I know this is my opinion only, but it is so much better than the plain lettuce salads that are so common in the US.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Merged: Apple Salad

While in Canada visiting Polish relatives they made a really yummy potato salad with all sorts of veggies and apple.

Has anyone heard of this salad before? We made it for Christmas. Every time I speak to them or email I forget to ask for the recipe!

It was really delicious, just wondering if this is a traditional recipe or unknown, or if anyone has a recipe for it?

it's pretty much close to staple food for Poles during holidays, for parties etc and it's called "vegetable salad" - "salatka warzywna".

One of the recipe versions is here.
