Olivier Salad

This yummy salad originated in Russia. It consists of chopped potatoes, carrots and peas in a mayonnaise dressing with tangy pickles and onion. It's a great winter dish, but also perfect for summer picnics and barbecues, or the first month of spring while you're waiting for the new produce to appear.
