Salad Olivier


Version Francaise

The legend says that this recipe was french and that a french cook, with the last name “Olivier”, imported in Russia and adapted it to the Russian taste.
There are a lot of different version of this salad, the one that I do is my family one.


Ingredients for two people:

  • Two potatoes ( the best for this recipe is the one that stay a little bit hard after boiling them)
  • A carrot
  • Two pickles
  • An egg
  • 50 gr of peas
  • 100 gr of ham dices
  • Some mayonnaise


  1. Boil the potatoes, the carrot and the egg. The egg should be hard boiled and the potatoes and the carrot should be a little bit soft.
  2. Dice the potatoes and the carrot, and put them in a salad bowl. Add some pepper and salt.
  3. Dice the pickles and the egg, and add them in the salad bowl.
  4. Add the peas and the ham dices.
  5. Finally add some mayonnaise. You can add some chives or some parsley.

Bon appétit!
