    This Spanish Ensaladilla Rusa recipe is very easy and fast, in 20 minutes you can prepare a delicious tapa.

    The name sounds funny for lot of people. Why is it called Ensaladilla Rusa if we are in Spain? Well, there is no one right answer. Some people tell that it’s because of the style, in which Ensaladilla Rusa is served cold. Other people think that Ensaladilla Rusa was invented by Russians and Spanish just copied the recipe.


    The most important is the fact that this typical Spanish salad is really tasty, easy to make and you can keep it in the fridge long time.
    If you want to serve a small tapa, just take a portion of Ensaladilla Rusa and decorate as you like.






    Ingredients for the Spanish Ensaladilla Rusa recipe:
    I normally make a big portion and I have it for 4 or 5 days.
    – 5-6 big potatoes
    – mayonnaise
    – green olives
    – 2 cans of tuna
    – 6 eggs
    – 2 carrots

    How to make it?
    1) Boil potatoes and carrot without skin, add salt;
    2) Boil eggs;
    3) Cut olives and eggs in small pieces (leave some bigger pieces for the final decoration);
    4) Wrinkle potatoes and carrots in some big bowl and mix it with eggs and olives. Add tuna without an oil of the can;
    5) Add mayonnaise and mix everything again, try it. It’s tasty, isn’t it? Maybe it needs more mayonnaise? The mayonnaise brand you choose is very important, 70 % of Ensaladilla Rusa taste will be given by the mayonnaise.
    6) Make some decoration with the eggs and olives you left before;
    7) Cover and keep in the fridge.
