Russian Egg and Mushroom Salad

Pat Duran


This easy Russian salad comes from Anya Von Bremzen's - Serve it open-faced on thick sourdough rye with dill pickle spears. This was also recommended by my neighbor, Galena also from Russia and also an American citizen.
Great stuffed in deviled eggs and on crackers.
