8 thoughts on “Salad For the Lazy”

  1. I have never seen anything like this in the US. It looks very good.
    The quality of US food has diminished badly over the past 30 years. The suppliers have resorted to cheaper ingredients to boost profits but the younger people do not know the difference. Most mass produced food in the US is severely adulterated.

  2. @Douglas Hi would think the quality of the food in the USA has diminished in the past 90 years not 30. The food was already pretty grotesque and adulterated by the 80s. Remember the low fat bonanza then? At least in Eastern Europe packaged foods are still sold to the absolute minimum. That’s why they are so tall and strong over there!!!

  3. In Russia, “salad” is chunky like the pictures? Maybe this is just a translation issue. In US, is by default leafy things (lettuce, raw spinach, etc.), unless with a qualifier like “pasta salad” (cold pasta and some other stuff), “ham salad” (chopped ham and some other stuff), etc. Russian/Ukranian salad looks good.

    • Danny: those salad jars are for holiday time. Russians add a 2 cups or more of mayonnaise to the mix [Russians love all flavors of mayonnaise]. Its call Olivier salad.

    • Yes, it’s a heavy and chunky salad. It’s almost like a meal on its own. Imagine two US-style salads, potato salad and egg salad, combined, plus dills and some kind of meat chunks (like ham or chicken breast). Very simple and delicious.

  4. Claire: I agree. Its more than 30 years going bad. Even butter is made by adding water and most olive oil is really a mixture of other oils….of course this is never mentioned on the ingredient label. The list of fake foods is endless.
