Hello! Miss Lopez here! Still doing my luggage to my trip to Spain so I was thinking of all the tapas I am going to eat. One of the most popular is ensaladilla rusa, or in other words, Russian salad. I do not know the reason of the name but I love it! specially in the summer. Perfect for the aperitif in a terrace! Nice!
Here comes the recipe for 6-8 people and you can make it and present it in a big bowl too. Check it out!
400 gr. potato
200 gr. carrots
125 gr. Canned peas
1 / 2 can of pepper
125 gr. canned tuna
2 eggs and salt
For the mayonnaise:
3 egg yolks
200 ml. olive oil
1 / 2 lemon (or 1 tablespoon vinegar)
Peel the potatoes and carrots, cut into cubes and put them to cook in a covered pot of salted water about 15 minutes until soft but not undone; drain and cool. Boil eggs separately in water with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes. Take the glass of the mixer the egg yolks,juice of half lemon, salt and a drizzle of olive oil, and begins to beat while still throwing the remaining oil in a row non-stop until a thick mayonnaise, try it and rectified salt if necessary.
Mix the potatoes and carrots with the peas, add your own hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped, shredded tuna features (save a few pieces for garnish) and cover with mayonnaise, stir everything well and set aside in the refrigerator. Serve the salad in appetizer spoons with a piece of tuna and a strip of red pepper, if you wish!
Via Spanish tapas to enjoy anytime of the year, even at the 4th of July! Congratulations America!
Viva la vida and Feelgood!!
