Salad Olovieh

Salade Olovieh / Olivieh

This is my all time favorite chicken salad. However, is it fair to call it chichen salad, when it also includes potatoes, eggs, carrots...should I go on?

Be aware, this salad is like money, it disappears quickly. Great for parties, great for lunches or for when you need something to snack on.

Named after the Belgian chef Lucien Olivier who invented it.
