Finally a decent recipe for Francuska! I usually put diced ham into it, it's a pretty fitting addition. This recipe is superfamous all over Yugoslavia actually.

If you add meat to it, it's no longer francuska salata, it becomes ruska/Russian.

Hey there! Thanks for this recipe; I've eaten a really close version with some Croatian friends a long time ago, and here is the salad I remember! Lovely, just lovely!
