Every week, I post one recipe from Latviešu ēdieni.
Latvian salads incorporating sour cream or mayonnaise as a dressing for a combination of vegetables are quite popular. They're easy to throw together, go with most anything and surprisingly tasty. This one is based on a very simple leek-apple salad in Latviešu ēdieni that we had with vareniky.
Leek-Apple-Walnut Salad [printable recipe]
Adapted from Latviešu ēdieni
- 1 leek, sliced thinly
- 1 small Granny Smith or other tart apple, cored, sliced into chunks
- 1 tsp horseradish
- 4 radishes, chopped
- 1/4 c walnuts, toasted and chopped
- 1 hard-boiled egg, diced (optional)
- dash of sugar
- pinch of salt
- sour cream1
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add enough sour cream to just bring the salad together.
- You can also use mayonnaise or a combination of the two.
