This salad is absolutely delicious. Why was this incorrect? A suggestion was "This is absolutely delicious salad", which to me sounds unnatural.
I think your sentence would be more like "этот салат очень вкусный"
The English translation is wrong: You don't say "This is an delicious salad", you say "This is a delicious salad"
They don't like when we put "really" for очень, unfortunately...wish they would, though, since really and very are virtually identical in usage. Report it, please. I have been.
As an English speaker "It is a very tasty salad" sounds super unnatural to me... I have honestly never heard anyone say that, so I put "The salad is very tasty" and that's wrong. Why?
This sentence is very appropriate at the moment, as I have just made винигрет for the first time in a couple of years, and I'm letting it marinate. I'm really looking forward to it. Винигрет - очень вкусный русский салат! :-)
