  • Nina

    This is a very yummy salad. The Russians add to it some green peas as well. I wouldn’t add the capers and olives though, as I prefer it the Russian way.

  • Natalia

    I totally agree with Nina, I would add the grean peas and leave off the crapers and olives. this is a delicious salad.
    And instead of boiling the vegetables you can steam them, in this case the flavor of the vegetables doesn’t go into the water but remains in them – try it it’s very tasty.
