Veg Russian Salad

 This is the tastiest salad I have ever prepared. I am sure you will love it too because it hardly tastes like a salad. It tastes just as yummy as any dessert and easy to prepare too!!

Russian salad is usually prepared with either ham, salami or eggs but it really doesn't matter if you skip the non-veg part.
