Creative Cooking Crew’s theme for this month is to bring an appetizer to a Thanksgiving dinner party which you have been invited to.
At Argentinian restaurant the first thing I order is the “ensalada Rusa” – Russian salad. This salad originated in Russia, but over time it’s made its way through Europe and South America.
Boiled eggs, used the yolks and mashed them with grain mustard and mayonnaise. Cooked the potatoes (adding a few purple potatoes for color – that’s for you Christo) and carrots until tender, diced, cooled then added to egg mixture. At the end I threw in frozen peas for a bit of a crunch. Salt/pepper to taste and a dash of nutmeg.
Now ladies and gents…CCC will be taking December off so we will see you in January 2014. To all, I wish you the best of the Season.
