    Bitter Moon's Note:

    A traditional Iranian dish made for special occasions. It is similar to American potato salad, but with chicken and lots of lemon. Very refreshing. A great summer side dish. Cooking time includes setting time.

      The salad is called "Salad Olvieh" ( comes from the russian salad " Salad Olivier")the spelling might be off since the iranian letters are different.You forgot the salt pickels. Use about 4-5 medium size finely chopped pickels ( originally salt pickeld) and mix in the other ingredients. That way the mix will stick better and you need less mayonaise. Use a dollop of Mayo to smooth down the mix on a platter or in a bowl and decorate with remaining pickels and peas ( or whatever you like). Iranian housewifes are masters in the kitchen including decorating their dishes in a big way.
