    Sharon123's Note:

    This is a popular cold dish in Russia, but was actually crated by a Frenchman, Monsieur Olivier, at his Moscow restaurant, L'Ermitage, in the late 1800's. He then went on to cook for Russia's last czar, Nicholas ll. The original recipe called for 6-8 oz. chicken,diced, but I have left it out, to make this vegetarian. Feel free to add the chicken back in, if you like!

      WOW!!! Sharon, this such a yummy twist on potato salad! I really like the addition of dill and cucumber! It makes the salad taste so fresh! Just plain YUMMY! :) I was very eager to see how everything would go together and especially curious about the addition of peas. But then somehow I forgot to add them in and didnt even notice until now. The salad in my opinion didnt need them. But Im sure theyd be a lovely addition. Since I luved this so much, Ill definitely make it again and then use the peas. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this tasty recipe with us, Sharon! Made and reviewed for 1-2-3-Hit-Wonders Octobre 09.

      This was good and we loved the carrots added. I do a lot of potatoe salads. However, it does need a bit of bang to it as it was somewhat bland. Either more salt or pickle type stuff. I am going to add bacon the next time I make it. Thanks Sharon123 its a keeper!
