The Year of the Snake Inspired Russian Salads!

It's already Year of the Water Snake! The whole world is currently celebrating the fun, cool, and colorful Chinese New Year. 

Different countries have their own forms and styles of celebrating the Chinese New Year. Some reflected their rituals in the form of food. They may serve you Chinese foods like dimsum, siomai, mami, siopao, or tikoy. But in Russia, they have their own styles of serving food with a touch of Chinese.

Since 2013 falls on the year of the snake, the Russians serve their own salads in the form of snake. And here are some:

The Potato Snake Russian Salad

The Kiwi Chicken Style Salad

The Snake Potato Salad

The Fish Snake Salad

So yummy! And at the same time, they were all healthy. I hope to taste some of these. Hmmm...I need to look for some restos serving Russian foods!
