A simple dish which I’m tempted to call a Russian Caesar salad. OK maybe that’s going a bit far – as a salad it’s quite good. Throw together in a bowl – salmon, boiled potatoes and eggs, (cooked) red onions, and then garnished with mayo and parsley. Serve cold and it’s all too easy.

The potato may be humble but I’m starting to miss having rice based dishes for dinner.

Again we have had to miss the cup out. I thought that Dan Murphy’s would sell something Russian other than vodka but to no avail. Please send in your Russian drinks.

I would be happy to eat this salad for lunch but it’s not quite fancy enough for dinner. I took a leaf out of the Swedish book and again poached the salmon in wine, which was good.
3 stars.
