Salad Olivieh Without Chicken 

Chicken gives a great taste to this Salad, but you can substitute hams and sausages instead if you want to remove chicken. Of course, if you are a vegetarian, you can use other vegetables such as mushrooms and bell peppers in your Salad instead of chicken.

Key Points for Making Salad Olivieh

  • The amount of lemon juice consumed in the Salad should not be a lot, and it is better to add the lemon juice with salt and black pepper to the sauce first and then pour it into the Salad so that it tastes evenly all over the Salad. But you should not remove this small amount of lemon juice from the Salad because it makes the Salad more delicious and fragrant. 
  • When you grate the potatoes, add about a glass and a half of chicken broth and leave it in the refrigerator for 8 hours until the potatoes absorb the chicken broth. Chicken broth makes the Salad much tastier and requires less sauce. 
  • Steam the carrots with some honey and sugar to make them more delicious. 
  • Fresh and natural lemon juice makes the Salad taste better. 
  • You can use more olive oil instead of sauce. 
  • Many people combine the sauce with yogurt and some red sauce, which gives the sauce a more delicious taste.
