“Russian salad” has disappeared from the menu at a restaurant at the IFEMA exhibition center in Madrid, where the main events of the NATO summit take place, Europa Press reported.
The agency stated that the dish received the name “traditional salad”, but the components of the salad and the price of the dish remained unchanged.
Earlier, Spanish TV channel Sexta reported that officials and journalists were surprised to see “Russian power” on the menu of a restaurant serving the NATO summit in Madrid.
The channel confirmed that the dish was sold “in the blink of an eye”.
In Spain, as in many countries of the world, Olivier’s salad is called “Russian salad”, and it is believed that the dish was so named, because after the 1917 revolution in Russia, immigrants who left the country spread the recipe all over the world.
