Russian Tomato Salad

Recipe by Dories Lori
READY IN: 15mins
SERVES: 1-20




  • Slice the tomatoes into thick (approx. 3/8”) slices, and place on a platter. They mostly should not overlap. Save the ends for nibbling.
  • If using garlic, discard the center green shoot, and finely chop the garlic. Rub it over the tops of the tomato slices. I personally like the garlic, but I go easy – even a little can be strong/spicy.
  • Put some mayo in the corner of a quart Freezer bag (not a snack, sandwich or storage bag – you need a strong bag.) Snip a small corner off the bag. (Fun Idea - could use a frosting tip for fun effects.).
  • This is the fun part :-) Squeeze the mayo attractively onto the tomatoes. I use ribbons, stripes, swirls, etc. Nina used Lots of mayo, but you can use as much or little as you like.
  • Sprinkle liberally with chopped dill. I might also sprinkle with some salt and pepper.
