Recipe by: Nada P.

Growing up as a Croatian American, every Sunday morning for as long as I could remember, my mother would make Ruska Salata for my family. She would make it and immediately refrigerate it. When we came home from church, she would serve it to us for brunch before preparing her big Sunday dinners. It was always hearty and delicious, served with loafs of fresh Italian bread. My oldest daughter was born in 1992, and I still try to make this dish every Sunday only using the best possible eggs, Eggland's Best!

Make This Recipe


6 Eggland's Best eggs, large, boiled & diced, or Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs

2 pounds potatoes quartered and boiled

1 cup of ham, chicken or corn beef diced

2 carrots chopped
