Russian Salad or Canape Filling

Russian salad is quick and easy to prepare and can be served simply as a salad or it can also be used as a canape filling. If you do not have canapes, you can top toast or crackers with this canape filling making for a quick snack. You can make your own variations of the Russian salad by adding bits of apple, pineapple and anything else you might see fit.
How to make Russian Salad
2 medium sized potatoes
3-4 carrots
1/2 cup green peas
10 French beans or ring beans
2 hard boiled eggs
3 heaped tbspns home made mayonnaise (or store bought one like American Garden mayonnaise) or as per taste
1/2 cup grated cheese or as per taste (I normally use boiled prawns chopped fine)
salt to taste

  • Cut the potatoes, carrots and green beans into 1cm bits or smaller.
  • Boil the veggies with salt and just enough water.
  • For quick home consumption, I put all the veggies together in a pressure cooker and cook on simmer after the first whistle for another three whistles.  
  • Drain and keep aside to cool. 
  • Dice the boiled eggs.
  • When the veggies have cooled, mix them with the mayonnaise, grated cheese and diced eggs.
