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.
