Olivier Salad

A plate of Olivier Salad

Olivier Salad is a Russian version of potato salad. Most Olivier recipes call for a Russian Bologna, which is a pale pink bologna that has a smooth and smoky taste. I skip the bologna because it's processed, and I think the salad has enough protein and vegetables in it, that skipping bologna won't make a big difference in taste.
