Every Russian living in Russia eats on average 52 pounds of this salad a year.

Best with VODKA. This applies to almost every delicious Russian dish.

Those are ingredients from "Match" but an be easily find in other less "exotic" places.

Boil for 25 minutes 3 potatoes, 2 carrots, 5 eggs.

Cut in small pieces grilled chicken breast,(this one is rather rare in a past, but becomes more common)

(can be replaced with the cocked meat, the cubes of ham, and even with cubes of any sausage.)

 potatoes, carrots, eggs.

Add two cans of peas, mayo, black pepper.

Cut 4-5 pickles, mix everything and taste.

If it needs salt add instead another pickle.
