Recipe From Russia: Salat Iz Yaits – Russian Egg Salad…

Russian love egg salad and one thing that Russians have in the villages is eggs and more eggs! When you drive Russia and see the sights, you will come to understand that chickens are everywhere and the village roads are sometimes clogged with stupid chickens… 🙂

So lets try an egg salad that is as close to Russian as I can get. This actually is a recipe of mine and I have altered it some for the occasion. In Russi, mustard is horseradish based so keep that in mind as you make it.

Lets make Salat Iz Yaits or Russia Egg Salad…

120ml/4fl.oz. of real mayonnaisep90ml/3fl.oz. plain yoghurt
1 tsp spicy mustard
salt to taste
1 garlic clove, crushed
6 hard boiled eggs, diced
2 tbsp finely chopped spring onion greens
1 tbsp finely chopped pimento as a garnish before serving


Place the mayonnaise, yoghurt, mustard, salt and garlic in a small mixing bowl and mix well first. Then place the egg and spring onion greens in a the same serving bowl and mix well. Chill before serving and in fact make this the night before, then refrigerate and allow flavors to blend. Then it is exceptionally better…

Garnish with the pimiento just before serving. Feeds 4…
