Polish Veggie Salad

My mouth is watering as I’m typing this recipe, because I love this salad. It reminds me of home as soon as I start mixing all the veggies and the flavors medley together. 

 This upgraded potato salad is often made when the veggies of the summer are no longer in season, and we’re back to the basics: carrots, potatoes, eggs, pickles, onions. It is nonetheless a much loved Polish staple that earned its right for glory. 

The recipe may vary a bit from home to home, because once you start making it, you will learn how you like it and adjust it. This colorful salad is often served at home parties, and it is a must-have at any holiday dinner table. It makes a great potluck dish also.

  1. We love this recipe! I’m making it today for a big cook out with friends. Our blog is about cooking our through our Granny’s recipe box. She married into a Polish family so she has some good Polish recipes! Galupki is our favorite so far. Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to try more of your dishes!

  2. I just finished making it for Easter dinner tomorrow. I’m pregnant, and the recipe just sounded good. I’m so glad I made it! It’s delicious!

  3. I don’t understand why you would say to use frozen peas in the recipe? It’s an insult to the salad! Tinned ones are much better!

    1. I don’t think it’s an insult to the salad at all. If I had access to fresh peas year round, I’d use those, but since I don’t, I use frozen. They come the closest to the fresh ones to me. Canned peas just taste artificial to me. Personal preference, I guess.

  4. I made this for Easter this Spring – something different to try – my mom’s 100% Polish – I thought she’d get a kick out of my attempt! My kids love it – almost as much as my German style.

    One thing I do is cut the mayo with sour cream ! (OK OK I add extra Dill too!)

    After a few hours in the fridge – the dressing “melts” and there’s a watery consistency to it. I don’t even use much anyway. What am I doing wrong? Is it the sour cream? I make sure all the cooked veggies are cool before mixing.

  5. Hi there! Very excited to make this recipe, so when using peas, you don’t cook them then let cool before putting in the salad? Maybe I missed something.

    P.S. love your videos!

  6. Greetings from Frackville, Pa. I have very close a friend in Ropczyce and I think this recipe is very close to hers. I’m sending her your link so she can check it out. Thanks for sharing your stories and recipes. 🇺🇸

  7. Made this to go with our Easter meal, and it was a huge hit! Great flavor and color. I noticed that you added parsnips in your video but it wasn’t on the recipe so I added those as well. Seems you can mix and match with whatever you have on hand. We’ll definitely be keeping this recipe and having with our favorite Polish dishes. Thank you!
