Olivier Salad (Russian Potato Salad)

Salad with mayo dressing is definitely not a typical Indonesian dish but it is pretty common find this kind of salad from times to times in special occassions. The salad mayo I used to eat was very simple, consisted of mixed veggies and boiled eggs. It was only lately I realized that it has uncanny resemblance with the Russian salad, or what they call it as Olivier Salad. 

My lovely cousin, Eva, who now resides in Moscow shared me her favorite Olivier salad recipe. It was really yummy. Here is the recipe (with a bit of twist). 

4 cups of chopped and parboiled mixed vegetables (corn, carrot, green peas, green bean)
3 yellow potatoes, boiled and cut into cubes (don't overcook the potato)
8 eggs, boiled and cut into cubes
500 gr of bologna (I used halal beef mortadelle), cut into cubes 
12 small sweet pickled gherkin, cut small
1 cup of cucumber, decored and cut into cubes 
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 cup of mayo
salt and pepper to taste

Preparing step: 
  1. Since I used frozen mixed vegetables, I re-boil it (not too long so it doesn't get too soft and mushy), 
  2. In a big salad bowl, mix chopped onion, mayo, salt and pepper,
  3. Add cubes of bologna, pickled gherkin, and cucumber, mix gently,
  4. Add mixed vegetables and potato cubes, mix gently,
  5. Once everything is evenly coated with mayo, add cubes of boiled eggs and mix gently. 
  6. Et voila, the salad is ready!
PS: I added the ingredients step by step because it was easier to mix.
