They call it "Olivier" in Russia. Just call it that.

It's simple and deceptively tasty. The New York Times published a recipe a few years ago. I make it a few times per year.

Also, to whom it may concern: the chair is against the wall. The chair is against the wall.

Renaming things like Russian salad and Russian dressing is every bit as stupid as when French fries were (thankfully briefly) renamed Freedom fries.

You don't toss a perfectly good salad. You get in there and enjoy it.

Heh, Spain has their own "Freedom Fries".

Perfectly good salad. Now there's a phrase you don't hear everyday. That last sentence is 4 letters too long.

Someone's looking for offence, I'd think a Russian salad would have amusing implications - sliced and diced and served up for dinner.

They slather it in everything, as a matter of fact what has become known as "Russian" cuisine has its roots in 1940's American industrial food. Check out the history of the official government cookbook called "The Book of Tasty and Healthy Food."

My paternal grandfather was born in 1905 and your reference brought his discussion of stupid Home Front tricks roaring back. Aside from bidding farewell to sauerkraut, patriotic twits changed the name of Baltimore's German Street to Redwood Street, and patriotic fools tossed German-made pots and pans into the harbor.

Supposedly in pre-beehive Hampden house wyfs with their stockings rolled down below their knees quit calling everyon "Hon" until the armistice.

The last Marylander killed in the War sniped by the Jerries at 10:55 on 11/11 was, according to legend, a Baltimore German in the Maryland National Guard.

So I guess you could say SCROTUS is Plan B.

they definitely call it Olivier in much of Eastern Europe. some West European and S.American countries do call it as salad russe. eh. I think it's the Fronch who popularized the stuff in US? where in NYC way back when, it got called as both.

also, the Chinese word for HK-style borscht quite literally means "russia soup" - some gulag escapees brought the concept to Shanghai or something?

It is potato salad with potatoes (obviously), cooked carrots, hard boiled eggs, peas, pickles, ham, and mayonnaise. As far as potato salads go it is good, but I would much rather have a German or mustard potato salad.

Per TFA and wiki, the Spanish version is not exactly the same thing. I mean, from TFA:

It is not the first time the Spanish staple - credited by many to the Italian-British cook Charles Elmé Francatelli - has fallen prey to politics.

If that's right, it's a bit mad that it would be called Russian salad anyway.

iono, literally no one makes it the same. then again the original version na russia, "...contained grouse, veal tongue, caviar, lettuce, crayfish tails, capers, and smoked duck" - in a waldorf sauce - wait, strike that... "I said salad cream, stupid!" - feels like pure showmanship tocktockpersonship, "let's see just how much gold leaf I can put on this burger!"

man, much as I am known on foodtab for "I'll try anything once!" ... that is a bit of a hard sell.

We call that "French Salad" https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/franciasal%C3%A1ta

The vegetable ingredient list is not set in stone ... you can give it a nice kick by adding just a few tiny pieces of pickles or apples. Not too much, otherwise it'll just overwhelm the whole dish.

Because Russia starting a war is the same as France refusing to join one.

Sour cream, not mayo. Every farking thing they seem to make at all of the Russian stores ( I count 6 in one square mile ) has sour cream. Now I don't have a hate-boner against sour cream as I do mayo but they need a new base for their salads. Yes, I've tried them.

/ Not a fan of those but they do have some tasty cakes and deserts.
