Cooked Vegetable and Egg salad - Traditional Polish Holiday Dish

I hope you aren’t sick of my traditional Polish recipes because I have another one for you. It’s the last one from our Christmas Eve dinner. I know it’s late for Christmas recipes. Forgive me, haha.

This cooked vegetable and egg salad is a traditional Polish holiday salad. It is my mom’s recipe so naturally that means it’s already healthier than the typical traditional Polish recipes. I got my healthy eating from my mom. Gotta love it!

This cooked vegetable egg salad makes an appearance on our family dinner table twice a year – every Christmas and every Easter. We love it. My dad especially, he is always the one to initiate that we should make it. So maybe that makes the recipe just as much my dad’s as it is my mom’s. Let’s just say it’s a family recipe, that probably sums it up much better.

My dad loves this one. Loves! He tends to add more mayonnaise than we do, but that’s the beautiful thing about it – you add as much as you want in your own serving. It’s better to let the salad stay in the fridge without mayo added so that way the salad stays fresh much longer. Although ours is usually gone in 3 days. What can I say? We like our holiday food 😉

This recipe makes one huge bowl. It’s huge. Like a whole lot of servings of salad. That’s why we make it for the holidays. It’s a special occasion.

Going through all the labor intensive work of cutting and peeling cooked vegetables isn’t exactly my definition of fun, although it goes much faster when you have someone else helping you and doing it with you. The atmosphere automatically becomes much more cheerful and bright. I always make it with my dad while my mom prepares other dishes holiday dishes.

  1. This is my absolute favorite Polish holiday dish, and the fact that it only shows up around Easter and Christmas makes it all the more special. There are sooo many different variations to this, but our families’ recipe seems to be pretty simple. We always add apples to ours though.

  2. This looks good! I showed my Husband and he wants me to make it for him! I guess I’ll be making your dish this weekend!!!

  3. i will never get tired of your Polish food. I love being exposed to new food ideas – I’m always inspired!

  4. Hi Im from Czech and i have to say that i quite surprised me that we have the same salad for X-mas too! I knwo that we are s neighbours but still! 🙂 Looks yummy!

  5. I love this! We have a very similar Russian dish called Olivye and I adore it as well. Nothing says home like a huge scoop of mayo salad. I suspect it’s an Eastern European dish that mildly varies from country to country. We actually have some sitting in our fridge right now 🙂
