Russian Salad

A salad that is a staple in most Soviet households, was first known as Olivier, named after the Russian chef of Belgian descent Lucien Olivier who invented it in the 19th century. He fiercely guarded the original recipe until one of Lucien’s spurned sous-chefs let the recipe out. Wait… should we thank the sous chef? When fresh assorted vegetables, greens and fruits are tossed in a creamy mayonnaise dressing, you know that it’s ought to be refreshingly delicious.
