Salad Olivier: one of secrets of Russian kitchen

Olga Giri

Biratnagar, Morang


The name of Salad Olivier is credited to French chef, M. Olivier, who established a fashionable restaurant in Moscow in the 1860s. The present day Salad Olivier differs from the original one and is at times known as Salad Stalichny (meaning Capital salad).

Whatever the variation, Salad Olivier continues to be a favorite hors d'oeuvre (appetizer) and side dish due to its taste & simplicity to be prepared.


         1 cup cooked fresh or canned green peas

         1 medium onion (finely chopped)

         1 cup of mayonnaise

         2 boiled eggs

         8 large black Greek olives

         8 sprigs parsley or green coriander

Preparation method

Cut the boiled chicken (veal or sausage) and potatoes into about 1cm3 cubes. Peel the cucumbers and eggs and cut into similar cubes. Mix the chopped meat, potatoes, cucumbers, green peas, and onion in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients in the same bowl. Add mayonnaise and mix gently. Pay attention not to mash the ingredients. Serve chilled. However, it is recommended not to refrigerate the prepared salad for more than 4 hours.

To make vegetarian Salad Olivier, only meat should be omitted while all the other ingredients and the preparation method remains the same. In fact, one can add or omit other ingredients to the salad to give it his/her unique personal touch.
