Preparation of salad "Olivier" with salmon:

Step 1: prepare the potatoes.

Using a kitchen brush, thoroughly rinse the potatoes under running warm water to remove residual soil and other dirt. Now put the tubers in a medium saucepan and fill with ordinary cold liquid from the tap so that it completely covers the components. We put the container on a big fire and cover it with a lid. When the water boils, fasten the burner and boil the vegetables for 25-35 minutes depending on size. Then, using a fork, we check the potatoes for the degree of readiness. To do this, pierce the tubers with inventory and look. If it easily enters the components, then you can turn off the burner. If not, then it’s worthwhile to extend the cooking time for 5-7 minutes.

At the end, we shift the vegetables to a cutting board and allow to cool completely. Then peel the potatoes and chop them into cubes. Pour finely chopped ingredients into a large bowl.

Step 2: prepare the eggs.

We lay the eggs in a small saucepan and pour completely running cold water. We put the container on medium heat and wait for the liquid to boil. Immediately after that we detect 10 minutes and boil hard-boiled eggs.
After the allotted time, we turn off the burner, and put the pan with the help of kitchen tacks in the sink under a stream of cold water. The components must be completely cooled so that they can be easily removed from the shell.

At the end, put them on a cutting board and finely chop into cubes. Pour the crushed eggs into a bowl with potatoes.

Step 3: prepare fresh cucumbers.

We wash the cucumbers well under running water, wipe them with kitchen paper towels and put them on a cutting board. Using a knife, remove the edges and then cut the vegetable in half along. Finely chop each part into cubes and transfer to a common container with other components.

Step 4: prepare pickled cucumbers.

We spread the pickled cucumbers on a cutting board and cut off the edges with a knife. Next, chop the vegetables into cubes and immediately pour them into a common bowl.

Step 5: prepare canned green peas.

Using a can opener, open a jar of canned green peas and carefully drain the liquid in which it was stored. Then, using a tablespoon, transfer the component from the container to a bowl with other components of the dish.

Step 6: prepare the onions.

Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running warm water. Now put the component on a cutting board and chop it into small cubes very finely. Pour the chopped onion into a common container.

Step 7: prepare the slightly salted salmon fillet.

We lay the salmon fillet on a cutting board and, using a knife, grind into cubes or thin strips. At the end, move the fish to a bowl with other ingredients and proceed to the preparation of the salad.

Step 8: prepare the salad.

In a bowl with crushed ingredients, add mayonnaise and to taste salt and black pepper. Using a tablespoon, mix everything thoroughly until a homogeneous mass is formed. Everything, the salad is ready!

Step 9: serve the salad.

We transfer the ready-made salad "Olivier" with salmon from a bowl to a salad bowl or a special deep plate, optionally decorate with fresh dill and serve to the dinner table. This dish is mainly prepared for various holidays. There is a tradition in our family: on New Year's Eve we all make this salad together and have a fun celebration, enjoying the dish. By the way, it is very satisfying, so in addition to it we literally make a couple more dishes.
Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- if fresh cucumbers are very watery so that the salad does not drip, I advise you to carefully remove their seeds. The same goes for the peel. If it is coarse, then cut it with a vegetable cutter;

- instead of salmon, you can add salmon, trout or pink salmon to the salad;

- Instead of onions, you can add green to the dish. Then "Olivier" will turn out more delicate and fragrant.
