Olivie
This dish is very popular in Russia and neighboring countries. It is as popular as the common potato salad that we eat here in the US, but a more filling and flavorful because of the addition of meat. This recipe calls for smoked ham, but you can easily substitute cooked chicken, shrimp, crab, turkey or other types of meat as a variation. Vegetarians can leave the meat out of the recipe.
  • 3 cooked medium carrots, diced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 2 cooked medium potatoes, diced
  • 1 can of sweet peas (15-16 oz)
  • 3-4 medium pickled cucumbers, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped finely
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. sour cream (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup smoked ham, diced

Scrub the carrots and potatoes, cut into chunks and boil until soft, about 12 to 15 minutes. After cooking, allow to cool and dice the carrots and potatoes long with the eggs, pickles and onion. You can substitute a favorite pickle relish as a shortcut instead of dicing pickles. Combine the vegetables in a bowl, add green peas, salt, mayonnaise, sour cream, and stir.
