Explanations of these names in case these processed salads don't exist in your country, by naming category:
These dips below are mostly Greek.
-Paprika is a two faced story. In Thesaloniki itis made with tomato paste mixed with mustard oil vinegar cheese oregano Other places in Grece use only red peppers processed (in the mixer) with spices
-Jajiki (correctly spelled tzatziki is a salad made with yohgurt (preferably strained ), lined cucumber , oil, vinegar, minced garlic and anise. This is purely greek salad an can easily be made at home Tarator is called in slavic countries offered as soup as far as i know.Jajiki
-Aubergine salad is made with grilled aubergines ,processed with garlic, oil and vinegar . Ther are two at last versions one of them using also mayo. Greek only salad I think.
These are not directed for sandwitch but are usd for other purposes
-Processed cheese'paste is actually white cheese minced in the mixer with some hot green papper and oil
-Skordalia (garlic dip) is a dip accompanied especially for the so called in UK 'fish and chips" This dip is made with garlic and mashed potato or dried old bread washed into water.
-Tarama is cod roe eggs mixed in a food processor with old (dry ) bread washed (into water) ,or mashed potatoes instead) oil and salt . Cod roe eggs paste can be either red or white
These dips/spreads are of unknown origin but use 'foreign' names:
-Russian salad is made by boiled cubed carrot potato peas and mixed with mayo. Unsure if this is just greek name
-Farmer salad is made with by raw carrots celery apple and others cut into thin lines and added with mustard and mayo. Alternatively strained yogurt may be added instead of mayo in salads
Some individuals replace mayo with processed watered flower for fasting periods.
These salads/dips are possibly German origin
-Buddhapest and Hungaraise are made with some of the above ingredients and also cubed ham
-Potato salad is only boiled potatoes mixed with mayo and thin slices of green peppers.
