I remember from my childhood that Polish vegetable salad – sałatka jarzynowa – was a must for each Easter, Christmas, birthdays and – very popular those times in Poland – name days. In the 80-ties mayonnaise was hard to get in stores, so we used to prepare it at home. It was fun for us, kids to help with all the culinary preparations. Dieticians say that this salad is a dietetic crime, but one cannot deny this yummy tradition, come on! 🙂
I still can’t imagine Easter with a family without vegetable salad. Polish vegetable salad is nice to have with cold sliced meets and Beets and Horseradish Salad.
