Recipe by Witch Doctor

The sophistication and finesse of the western salad preparations have not yet penetrated into the Russian home, and the salads remain simple and down to earth. Because of the enormous premium placed on fresh vegetables, many people prefer to eat them without any dressing at all, or just lightly sprinkled with oil and vinegar. Or lemon juice. This salad is made with olive oil, which used to be called “oil of Provence”, thus named Provencal.
