Olivier Salad

Olivier Salad Recipe

When I visited Moscow a few years back, locals introduced me to this classic Russian salad. It resembles American potato salad, except it contains peas, carrots & ham. Since many regional versions of Olivier salad exist, feel free to add other tasty ingredients, like briny capers.
