Recipe - Latvian potatoe and sausage salad rasols

This salad is very popular in Latvia. It might not look too great, but it tastes really good. You can find this type of salad in almost every supermarket and canteen here. But it is most delicious when home made. :)

And the best of all is that You can replace ingredients and still get great result. For example - You can replace sausage with lean ham or even with chicken fillet. Or You can replace carrots with beetroot - it's also very popular variation of this salad here. You can even don't use eggs at all.

I make this salad quite often - it's easy and delicious! And my boyfriend likes it very much.
