Olivier Potato Salad Recipe

This salad is considered to be a festive dish of Russia that revolutionized the country's food industry 150 years ago. It was so famous, that until this day everyone talks about the chef.

The salad is simple to make and can last your family for several days. Although mayonnaise always stays as a dressing, there are many varieties of ingredients. Every bite is full of flavor due to the mixture of ingredients, which are all chopped into small pieces. I use Chopper to speed up the process, it made my life so much easier.

When I think of this salad, it brings me memories from my childhood. We would always make a bunch of it around the Thanksgiving and other holidays, serving to guest that would come by for a visit.
