    Enjolinfam's Note:

    Another Romanian recipe from my Romanian friend Carmen. I love the tangy flavor of this Romanian potato salad. The pickled red bell pepper can be difficult to find. If you can't find it, Carmen suggests to just double amount of pickles as a replacement so it keeps the good sour taste. She did this when she made it for a cooking demonstration and it tasted great! The vegetarian sausages are optional, but I personally think they are a must as they give the salad great flavor.

    • 1 tablespoon pickle juice (from the jar of dill pickles)
    • 2 -3 tablespoons mustard
    • salt, to taste
    • spices, to taste (she likes to add different spices to it sometimes) (optional)
    • 6 vegetarian sausages (they should be fried ahead and you can use real meat if you're not vegetarian)

      Wash the potatoes and the carrots well, then boil them unpealed until a fork can easily go in and out.
    2. 2

      I make this all the time, usually with chicken. I use boiled potatoes, carrots, a bit of parsnip and maybe root of celery. I used to add peas, I haven't used them lately. You can use pickled or roasted red peppers, but it will be fine without. Dill pickles are a must, but I don't use any of the juice. I mix everything with mayonnaise and mustard, and I only use salt and pepper for spices. It turns out great! Another simple favorite is boiled beef with chopped dill pickles, mixed with mayo and a bit of mustard. Simple and tasty!

      This is an extrememly awesome salad. I have some friends who are from Romania and i had this at their house today. Only they used Canadian Bacon, hard boiled eggs, onions, pickles, potatoes, roasted bell peppers, olive oil, Kalamat olives and mustard for a dressing and pepper to taste. I am headed to the store to get the ingrediants to make it for my family tonight.

      For meat eaters, try it with beef meat, or chicken breast meat! The original recipe is with beef. However, you don't fry the chicken or beef meat as you would with sausages, you boil the meat, let it cool, then cut it in small pieces, same as the vegetables. I used to eat this in Romania every New Year and I still make it every year. It's a great recipe!
