Olivye – Russian Potato Salad

Olivye - Russian Potato Salad

Iv tried many different potatoes salad and i gotta admit this is the best! This potato salad is definitely a popular ¬†and traditional russian salad. Even though everyone might have their own way of making it, I’m excited to share my families recipe with you.

Don’t be intimidated by all the cutting vegetables small, once you get the hang of it, it takes quite fast, and also is so worth. This salad lasts quite some time, as long as you just mix in the mayo and salt before serving it will stay fresh up to a week. I only mix in how much salad we will eat that time.

Also you can add in diced bolongy, i personally like it without meat! Enjoy:)
