Explanation: It's a piece of pork fat tissue, usually salted, sometimes also rubbed with spices. It's quite popular in Russia and especially in Ukraine. You cut thin slices from a block of salo and just put them in a sandwich (best with rye bread or pumpernickel), or you can just use little pieces to fry something - the way you would use bacon in the US.
