Today’s recipe is a take on my Ensalada Rusa recipe, which translates as Russian Salad. If you are not familiar with this salad, it’s a classic potato salad served throughout Latin America, usually made with potatoes, carrots, peas, onions and mayonnaise, although there are many variations.
I added diced apples and cooked shredded chicken to my traditional recipe and the result was fantastic! I really Iike the combination of textures and flavors of this potato salad, which can be served as a main meal or side dish.
Potato, Chicken and Apple Salad
- 4 large potatoes, peeled, cooked and diced
- 1 cup diced carrots
- 1 cup peas
- 1 chicken breast cooked and shredded
- 2 apples, peeled and diced
- ½ cup diced white onion
- Lime juice from 2 limes
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ½ cup sour cream or plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro or parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Mix all of the ingredients together and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

The Polish version of Russian salad (there are versions all over the world, actually, it's fascinating) does entail an apple cut into small cubes, and it's really good! They also, like you, replace a good part of the mayo with sour cream, mustard and a bit of vinegar, which is also very nice and much lighter. I applaud the addition of cilantro in yours (but then, I'm a big fan of cilantro ;-)).
