OLIVIER SALAD “Olivye” – Vegetable & Egg Salad with Mayo

Olivier salad is a traditional Russian salad, which is very popular. Olivier salad contains canned green peas, boiled potatoes, carrots, boiled eggs, pickles, sausage, and mayonnaise.

I use homemade mayo for this salad. It’s okay to use store-bought mayo as it won’t change the flavor of the salad, however, if you want it to be healthier then you can make it yourself using healthier oils like cold-pressed flaxseed oil or MCT oil. I wouldn’t use cold-pressed olive oil for my mayo, as it turns bitter and will ruin the salad.

I also swap sausage with boiled or broiled chicken. You can use any kind of meat, including boiled beef.

I usually eyeball the ingredients, so the amount doesn’t have to be precise.
