Stolichny chicken salad

Stolichny salad is a version of the famous Olivier salad, which in many countries is commonly referred to as Russian salad. In general, there is no great difference between Olivier and Stolichny salad, except for one ingredient - meat. Some mistresses say that the classical Olivier should contain beef or chicken, while Stolichny salad should be made of sausage. According to the others, there should be beef or sausage in Olivier, and chicken – in Stolichny salad. In short, these arguments are senseless, since the taste of any meat ingredient is half “spoiled” by mayonnaise.


  • Mayonnaise – 200 g
  • fresh or pickled cucumbers – 4 pcs.
  • onion – 2 bulbs
  • boiled chicken meat – 300 g
  • potatoes boiled in their jackets – 6 pcs.
  • hard-boiled eggs – 6 pcs.
  • canned green peas – 1 tin-can
  • greens for serving

Preparation method (receipt)

Peel potatoes and eggs and cut into small cubes. Cut cucumbers, onions, chicken, ham or meat into cubes of the same size. This is to ensure that the salad is well soaked with mayonnaise and becomes tender and fluffy. Put the prepared ingredients in a salad bowl and add green peas. Dress with mayonnaise and stir well. You can optionally decorate the salad with green onions, parsley and dill.
