Usually people outside of former-USSR call it
Russian Salad, however its original name is Salad Olivier.
This salad was and maybe still is the most
traditional dish for the home New Year celebration for Russian people, and some other family holidays also. Hope you will like it too.
Different cooks may use slightly different ingredients in the salad, and the taste will vary because of this.
This recipe describes Salad Olivier how it us being prepared in my family.

I’ve prepared the pan fried cod for this photo recipe, but you can cook pretty much fresh
fish of any kind in the same way. Just make sure you scale fish before (if it has scales) and cut into portion pieces suitable for frying.
I like to serve fried fish with
Potato Puree, but you may find some other side dish for it. February 7th, 2009 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina Eating fish at least once a week is one of a rules you follow to stay healthy. At my home we like to eat a russian fish soup, called uha in russian, to keep brain working better.
Uha can be prepared of pretty much any kind fresh fish you can find in your shop. I prefer to make it with atlantinc salmon.

Got people coming over in a 20 mins and got nothing to bite? Make a
ham rolls stuffed with fresh carrot & garlic salad.
Easy and fast! Tastes better when accompanied by beer and TV.

And again carrots with a lot of vitamin A and carotene. The best way to keep those nutrients from “dying” while cooking is to eat them fresh. And garlic can’t spoil it anyhow.
Fresh Carrots & Garlic Salad as an healthy addition to your meat meals. January 20th, 2009 in Sides by Julia Volhina Potato puree, or you may also call it mashed potatoes, is a perfect side dish for any meat or fish or poultry entree.
It is perfect choice before fried potatoes especially for those whose digestive system needs a bit of support.

meat main dish with a set of vegetables. You will need to spend a bit of time to get it done, but the result will not leave you disappointed. Stewed vegetables and tender beef, what can taste better?
