"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." — LollySoly

1 (16 ounce) jar
1 (15 ounce) can
cooked chicken breast meat, very finely chopped
ground black pepper to taste
An excellent dish as is. Instead of using 1 can of drained peas I substituted a thawed 12 oz package of frozen peas and carrots. Also added a little garlic and finely diced yellow onion for added flavor. The whole family enjoyed it.
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 minutes. We do not use onions, it will take a strong overpowering onion smell and taste, especially if you're planning to keep the leftovers for a while in the fridge. Best if chilled over night to let the flavors blend:you can really taste the difference. Store in air tight containers and it will last for a week in the fridge. (DOES NOT freeze well) Great as a sandwich spread or side dish. your favorite chicken wing or fried chicken dish will go well with it. :)--For those who rated the recipe without reading the directions: tomatoes are NOT used in the recipe, they are only the garnish--
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!
