Russian Salmon and Potato Salad recipe

An easy and hearty side dish that can be made ahead of time and chilled for picnics or dinner. Flaked salmon, caramelized onions, boiled potatoes and creamy mayonnaise are layered in a glass dish and chilled until the flavors are married together. Hardboiled eggs tie the dish together, making it a unique salad any time.


  • 2 eggs
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (16 oz) can salmon, drained
  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley


  1. Place eggs in small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil, and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 12-15 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, and peel. Set aside.

  2. In large saucepan cover potatoes with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes or until just tender. Drain, and set aside.

  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until aromatic and translucent.

  4. Prepare salad by spreading salad in bottom of a 9-inch baking or serving dish. Spread sauteed onion over salmon, and top with mayonnaise, and potatoes. Slice eggs and layer over potatoes, garnishing with parsley.
