"Olivier Salad is a Russian salad composed of diced potatoes, vegetables and chicken bound in mayonnaise. This version has changes from the original recipe and faintly resembles Olivier's original creation -- but the ingredients are rather more handy."

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Place the potatoes into the refrigerator to cool. When the potatoes are cool, grate them into a large bowl.
  2. While the potatoes are boiling, place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel once cold.
  3. Dice the cooked eggs and dill pickles. Place the eggs and 2/3 of the dill pickles into the salad bowl with the potatoes; reserve the rest of the pickles. Place 3/4 of the peas into the bowl, and reserve the rest. Place the chicken breast meat into the bowl. Add 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and black pepper, and very lightly stir the mixture together so that the ingredients are well coated, but the peas stay whole. Place the salad in an attractive mound on a platter, and spread 1/2 cup of mayonnaise over the salad in a layer. Arrange tomato slices over the salad, and decorate with reserved diced pickle and peas.

As is, I would rate 3 for "Just OK". Add some mustard and salt and it will give it the kick that it needs to be a 4.

My mom's version: she uses leftover chicken, turkey or ham(smoked is awesome!), adds a tablespoon of lemon juice and a raw shredded carrot. Canned peas are OK but she uses frozen-they cook in mi...

This food is so Delicious and is a good dish for family and friend gatherings or birthday parties. The chicken breast also can be replaced by ham so the cook time would be decreased. Enjoy it!

I am from Russia and this is very close version of Olivie salad. It is known as New Years' eve dish, everybody have it in Russia during this time of the year. Awesome!

Olivier Salad is called "Salad Olivier" in Iran, and the version that I learned has grated carrots (optional, but no tomatoes except as a side platter). Iranian cooks typically boil chicken (I u...

I put less mayonnaise in it and used deli chicken. Forgot the pickles and tomatoes. But the combination of chicken, egg, potato and peas was rather unexpected for a salad and really good!

Add 1 small cucumber diced 1/4 x1/4' and about 1/4 lb smoked salami diced very fine and you will see the difference. It brings a lot of freshness and taste.
