Interesting recipe. Olivier is the main salad in Russia. The common recipe has such ingredients: boiled eggs, boiled potatoes and usually it's just a sausage, they have big sausage like Bologna sausage (or, sometimes chicken breast), then mayonnaise (I haven't tasted this salad with homemade mayonnaise, they have mayonnaise from the shops). Also, I have tasted Olivier with canned peas and onion.

[QUOTE=CharlieD;1513365]We alread decided that each chef has his/hers own version of this salad. though I have never heard this one, unless he is like me and keeping kosher and is serving this salad as an appetiser with fish course. You see, if you keep kosher you cannot serve fish and meat at the same time.

This is my recipe:

equal amounts of potato, carrots, green peas, hard boiled eggs. For fish course imitation crab or shrimp, the real crab and shrimp are not kosher. For meat coarse, diced boiled chicken or turkey meat, cut up bologna. Never seen seen people adding salami or beef.
For those who do not keep kosher people mix meat and seafood products.

Additionally some people add cucumbers and/or onion. And then there are even those that add pickles. But in my book that is just beyond disgusting, even though I love pickles and cucumbers . Some things just do not match.

Now I'm going to try to add pictures here. See what happens. Usually I have problem with that.[/QUOTE
Hmm! The dreaded "Russian Salad" sold in tins by Heinz when I was a little girl may have been based on that but it has to taste better than the disgusting Heinz travesty
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

Obviously I never tried Heinz version.
But I am sure my version is better.
You are what you eat.

If you Google 'How popular is Russian (or Oliviar) throughout the world?' You may get a surprise!

potatoes, recipe, salad, smoked salmon

The Russian Olivier Salad THE RUSSIAN OLIVIER SALAD .. Russian Chef Viacheslav Gonchar, in Barcelona, had given me this recipe this past Friday, which was originally created in Russia, by French Belgian Chef Luicen Olivier in the 1860s. "There are uncountable versions of this festive Russian Salad, and the Olivier Salad, as there are Chefs" .. It is very similar to the Russian Salad however, the key ingredients are Smoked Salmon and Caviar and it was served in The Russian Restaurant in Moscow called THE HERMITAGE .. CHEF GONCHARīs RECIPE .. 200 grams of Smoked Salmon Caviar or Salmon Roe 2 Potatoes Boiled and Peeled and then when slightly cool, diced. 1 carrot peeled and diced 100 grams of sweet peas ( can use fresh without pods, canned or frozen) 1 Cucumber peeled and diced 3 Hard boiled eggs ( separate the white from the yolk which shall be sprinkled in the salad and also used as garnish ) 1 Carrot for ribbons for the garnish 1 green scallion or shallot peeled and minced 1) Peel are vegetables. 2) Prepare salted water in several sauce pans / and boil the potatoes, carrots, sweet peas and the eggs. 3) In a crystal bowl, place the diced vegetables, the green scallion or shallot and the diced cucumber. 4) salt and pepper to taste .. 5) Slice the smoked salmon into small ribbons and place in the bowl. 6) Place the home made mayonnaise in the bowl and combine the ingredients in a clockwise motion with a wooden spatula .. 7) Check salt and pepper .. 8) Splash a bit of white wine vinegar of cider vinegar into the bowl. THE CAVIAR OR ROE: This shall be used on top of the Salad along with sprinkled hard boiled egg yolks, and if you wish green olives with sweet red bell filling. One can also sprinkle a bit of minced fresh parsley if they so desire. THE MAYONNAISE: 300 ml. Evoo and 1 egg .. This should be prepared in a metal bowl with a large metal whisk. Whisk until the Evoo and the egg form a thick white type Mayonnaise concoction .. Have a lovely day .. 4 stars 1 reviews
