I had my first tryst with Russian Salad during one of the parties at the Officer’s mess soon after marriage. My liking for this salad was instantaneous. Though it took a while to figure out how to make it, I am delighted to say that the first try itself was a huge success.

It is nothing but cooked veggies and fruits mixed with Mayonnaise. 🙂 Once the mayonnaise is made, the rest is pretty much simple.
