Russian Salad (Salat)

Another recipe contribution from my Belarussian roomie – Russian salad or salat!  To stick with the whole Russian theme, this salad is a great complement to Holodnik (Russian cold soup).  Furthermore, because the majority of the ingredients are the same, it is very convenient to make both dishes at the same time for an overall refreshing meal!

Russian Salad (Salat)

Yields: 3-4 servings


  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 2 stalks of green onions, chopped
  • Handful of fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sour cream


Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and … that’s it!

So simple, so healthy ish, so delicious!
