I am trying to keep some sort of make ahead food for those afternoons where I stare into a cupboard or refrigerator full of ingredient type food but I don’t want to make at the moment because I don’t want to heat up the kitchen on a summer day.
Helloooo, make ahead cold salad!
I found this recipe for Russian Vinaigrette written on a napkin in the back of my cupboard after an avalanche of reusable water bottles recently fell out of the cabinet and onto my head. Note to self: Clean out the cupboard. I wonder what other recipes I used to make but forgot are in there?
I asked a Russian student for the recipe after I tried it at an International student event at Ohio State because I liked it so much and I used to make it all the time. It is the perfect summer cold salad because you don’t have to worry about mayonnaise curdling in the sun or in a not so cool cooler.
