Olivier Salad

This salad is probably the only one that tastes great the day after a festivity – having it sit in the fridge overnight adds more creaminess and tanginess. The salad is also pretty filling, so it is not only part of a larger meal but can be served as a standalone dish.

  • 1 medium onion
  • ½ (7.5 oz) can  peas

How to Make Olivier Salad:

  • Boil the potatoes, carrots, and eggs.
  • Chop all the ingredients, both boiled and raw, into fairly uniform small cubes (except for the peas). 
  • Mix all the ingredients together well. Add the mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • You can vary the quantities based on personal preference. Make sure you balance them out well, like in this recipe, i.e., if you want a double amount, double all the ingredients listed in this recipe.
