5 dishes that were invented in the USSR and remain popular today
In the USSR, there were very popular dishes which were prepared on holidays and beyond, and which are still popular today. One such dish is the "Olivier" and "Shuba" salad, as well as waffle cake, fish and sprat sandwiches.
This tasty salad was invented back in 1860 and is still popular today. It is worth noting that over time new ingredients were added to the salad, for example, instead of crayfish and grouse, sausage and chicken fillet were added, and the vegetables included boiled potatoes and carrots, eggs, and pickled cucumbers, green peas and onions. We dressed the salad with homemade mayonnaise, salt and onion.
This salad was first prepared in the 19th century in Scandinavian and German cuisine and was called "herring salad", based on herring, beetroot, boiled eggs, potatoes and pickled cucumbers. Nowadays, this salad remains just as popular.
This simple dish was an alternative to Italian pasta in the USSR. It was made very simply by frying minced meat, adding cooked pasta and serving it with a sprinkling of cheese or fried onions.
In Soviet times, semolina was the most economical and cooked very quickly. Often the porridge was lumpy because it was cooked in large quantities.
This was the cheapest soup made with sausages, potatoes, onions, carrots and melted cheese.
