We are glad to meet again, dear readers. Today we will teach you how to cook a very popular and well-known salad in a new way. Our hero is lean Olivier. I think no one will argue that in Lent you want just as much delicious food, which means you need to create alternative dishes and make them as useful as possible. Lenten salad Olivier is just about that. We went further and even made a lean salad with mushrooms. To replace the meat ingredient with something. It turned out differently, but still very tasty. Take our word for it, or better yet, check it out for yourself. But we will not change our traditions and, first of all, we will talk about history.
The history of this salad has been retold thousands of times by everyone and sundry. And we also remembered her as part of one of these recipes. Today, I would not like to disturb the name of the infamous chef Olivier again, who died without revealing to anyone the true recipe for his wonderful salad. From the two recipes that have survived to our times, which have received the status of being as similar as possible to the original, we learn the main thing: the unchanged ingredients of the salad were the meat component due to grouse and seafood in the form of crayfish necks.
Is it really nothing to do with what is commonly called Olivier salad today? Expensive salad necks completely disappeared - with the advent of the Bolsheviks, there was simply nowhere to take them, but the hazel grouses were easily replaced first with ordinary meat, and then completely with sausage. This means that our recipe and the lean Olivier itself will not become a gross culinary mistake, but will turn into another variation. And who knows, maybe you will find it even tastier.
Frankly, I see little benefit in such salads. Yes, that's just a lean recipe or not, but Olivier salad has been our love since childhood. And therefore, at least once a year, we certainly prepare it, at least for the new year. So it is necessary to find the most useful and harmless variations of it. Who knows, maybe such a recipe or, for example, lean Olivier with squid takes root in your family. Can you tell us about your experiences? How do you prepare olivier? We are interested and our readers too. Let's make culinary history together. Your HozOboz.
