Recently I recalled salads that were served in the USSR, not only at home but also in catering, at the same time be accessible i.vkusnymi. Salads and snacks from the "Prague" include in this list did not - "Prague" restaurant was "the claims".
Dishes that were served there, most often appeared slozhnosochinennogo. Still I am trying to find a recipe for a cold appetizer with caviar, made of thin slices of jellied meat either, or fish, which was neatly folded, and the jelly on it manages to remain intact.
I do not know what came over me, a child then, makes a great impression - herself a snack or something, the waiter offered her, solemnly passing between tables. And, maybe, waiting for a table in the blue room? Or atmosphere of the place in which it was said, Hitler was going to celebrate the capture of Moscow?
In short, now that easier.
In the cafe "Valdai" I really liked the salad "Capital". He was a relative of "Olivier" Soviet times, but instead used the sausage boiled beef tongue.
Canned peas - 250 g
Boiled tongue - 400g
Boiled chicken eggs - 4 pieces.
Boiled potatoes - 3-4 pieces.
Boiled carrots - 1 pc.
Onion - 1 pc.
Pickles - 3-4 pieces.
Apple - 1 pc.
All cut, mayonnaise. And no dill! In the "Valdai" adorn this salad a maximum of a sprig of parsley.
Salad "Potato" in different variations I have been in the dining room and in the institutions of higher rank. I liked, I remember, potato with cucumbers (the people it is now called "peasant").
For the main set (yield 1000 grams) routing recommended to take 840 grams of potatoes (here and weigh!), 170 grams of onions - green or onions, 150 grams of mayonnaise, sour cream or filling number 895. Refueling is easy: 500 milliliters of vegetable oil and vinegar, 40 grams of sugar, 20 grams of salt, 2 gram of black pepper (if you will be cooking, reduce the proportion, recount now is not the laziness and complicated)
In this salad pickled optionally added (200 grams per kilogram) or sprouts, or herring, or fungi. It turned out tasty and inexpensive.
Salad "Egg" We took when to eat like, and the institution itself inspired strong suspicions. Well, it is correct - to spoil the egg salad was very difficult.
Again, layout give 1000 grams of the finished dish
Take 11 eggs,, 200-300 grams of pickled cucumbers, 110 grams of onions, 200 grams of mayonnaise and mustard 30 grams.
Eggs boiled hard-boiled, cucumbers cleaned. Eggs, cucumbers, onions, finely cut, add prepared mustard, mayonnaise and mix.
Want to indulge in nostalgia - bon appetit!
