Dress up your salad.

Ideas how to decorate Salad! Russian Salad;) 
Over the years I would make this traditional Russian Salad for birthdays or particular events. And always would make it fun for my guests. 

If anyone interested here is the recipe:


* 3-4 medium potatoes

* 1 -2 large carrot

* 3 large eggs

* 1/2 lb lean boiled beef or chicken or bologna. 

* 3-4 small picked cucumbers

*  4 oz of canned green peas

* 2 Tbsp of Mayonnaise

* Dill for garnish (optional)

* Salt and Pepper to taste. 

For decoration I usually use what is in the salad. Eggs green pease etc.
