Delicious, creamy, traditional Polish vegetable salad. Some delis do make and sell it; the recipe varies from deli to deli, from household to household. Some like it crunchier, some like it with more of "this" or none of "that".
This is a staple for the Polish Easter breakfast table. It tastes especially good on a plate with some polish bread and smoked ham.
This is my mother's recipe. It is a traditional, sentimental dish we all look forward to. From my home to yours... I hope you enjoy it!
(If Alton Brown were Polish, this would surely make his "good eats" list!)
