Ensaladilla Rusa


Hi there cocinero! It is time for another Christmas recipe. Well, to be honest, ensaladilla rusa is ideal no matter the season of the year. It is a cold salad made with boiled veggies, and despite in Spain I would say it is a summer essential, I think it is a great salad for Christmas too. You can serve it as a “tapa” to share before the main course. My advice: prepare you own home-made mayonnaise (egg + sunflower oil) and use good quality tuna and olives. That will make the difference 😛

Which is your favourite food for Christmas? How often do you prepare “tapas”? Don’t forget I would love to see all your pictures! See you next week cocinero! ❤
