My friend, Anya, shared with me her recipe for a classic Russian salad. And with the current profusion of garden tomatoes and cucumbers that have been flowing through the house the past few weeks, I can’t stop making it.
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
2 cups cucumbers, diced
1 cup sweet onion, diced
3 Tablespoons dill (fresh is best, but I have been using dried)
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise (Hellman’s forever ♡)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Drain the chopped tomatoes and gently squeeze out some of the extra juice so your salad isn’t runny.
Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and gently fold to combine with a rubber spatula. Serve immediately.
