Learn how to make an authentic ensaladilla rusa with this classic tapas recipe. Ensaladilla rusa is also known as Russian salad or Ensaladilla Olivier thanks to its inventor Lucien Olivier, a Russian chef who created this salad in his Moscow restaurant Hermitage around 1860. My grandma's tip when she made her ensaladilla was to pour a little bit of the oil from the bonito tuna into the salad. Traditionally served with a cold beer and some picos de pan breadsticks, ensaladilla rusa can be made in advance and served as part of a selection of tapas or as a side dish to grilled fish or barbecued meats.
