Russian style crab salad
1-pound can of crab meat, drained
1 pound fingerling potatoes, boiled and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 cup frozen peas, defrosted
¾ cup green onions, thinly sliced
¾ cup cornichons, sliced (or pickles)
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh dill
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Lots of fresh ground pepper, pinch of cayenne and salt, to taste
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for about an hour in the refrigerator. Can be made a day ahead. Perfect for summer suppers and picnics.
Traditional Russian Salad is made with mayonnaise. I substituted mayo with Extra Virgin Olive Oil to make it lighter. You can find canned crab at Costco or Safeway.
