Beouf Salad


Beouf Salad
This is a traditional Romanian dish, generally served during all festive and special occasions. It can be done with beef, chicken, turkey or ham. The name may suggest a French culinary influence as the word "beouf" is French for beef, but the dish is of Russian origin from salad Olivier or Russian salad. This salad is normally served with some french bread and can be a meal in itself. The dish is usually made up in large quantities for the whole party. It's eaten as a side dish/salad to fried meats or as an appetizer/entre.Depending upon your taste, you may add more or less from the ingredients listed below. I prefer equal quantities from each ingredient, about 1 cup of each:
