Enjoy your meal!
- In the original recipe, cilantro was used, but not everyone likes its taste and smell, so I suggest replacing it with a more neutral dill.
- Raw foodists can also take a note of this salad for themselves, replacing boiled potatoes with raw zucchini.
- I also often meet the recipe for this salad, according to which it is recommended to season it with mayonnaise or sour cream. In my opinion, this is not worth doing, but we all have different tastes.
