Classic Russian Salad

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.

Classic Russian Salad


  • 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


  1. Drain the chopped tomatoes and gently squeeze out some of the extra juice so your salad isn’t runny.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and gently fold to combine with a rubber spatula. Serve immediately.
