Russians usually joke that without “Olivier” there is no New Year’s Eve. And if you didn’t know, in Russia New Year’s Eve is the biggest fest of the year, even bigger than Christmas. Now you understand what important role plays “Olivier” for every Russian. And by the way, different variations of this salad are popular in many countries all over the world (according to Wikipedia).
And the other interesting fact about Russian Olivier is that Russians make it in such incredibly big portions, e.g. size of a saucepan or a large basin 🙂
But the problem about Olivier is in its caloric value. So, when I came across this edition of Olivier in my favorite Glamour magazine, I was excited to try it out immediately. Of course, it doesn’t reduce calories much but it tastes lighter than its classic version. That’s why I liked this new edition of Olivier. I hope, you’ll be inspired enough to try it as well!
PS: oh, on photos you will never recognize mayo, because I failed to whisk it well for the photoshoot! But I’ve done mayo for Christmas dishes lately and it looked like the one from supermarket, only tasted so much better and had yellower color.

* I salt salmon myself as where I live it is easier to find smoked salmon than salted one. But if you happen to make the salad for this New Year’s Eve and you have only smoked salmon, use it! I believe, it will also do well!
How I salt salmon? I follow this simple recipe from edimdoma.ru . And it works just fine!
