Salad Olivieh (Chicken, Potato & Egg salad)

Salad Olivier is known all over the world, it is also called Russian salad in some countries.  It was originally created by the French Chef, M. Olivier, but claimed by the Russians as one of their dishes. In Iran they call it Salad Olivieh and the ingredients are rather different from the original recipe.

This salad is delicious when served fresh but even better when it has been refrigerated for a few hours or even overnight.

    I absolutely LOVE this salad! I recall while living in Iran, that people would also make sandwiches with salad olivieh. Yummy! One can even put the salad into a jello mold as I did with a fish mold and it added such interest. Lovely!

    Of course the lemon juice in Iran tastes quite different in comparison to that from the United States. I like to use Persian lemon juice in order to get the same flavor I remember so well. More authentic!
