Trust me when I say that this Vegan Olivier Salad tastes better than it looks. I grew up having this salad at my birthday parties. It’s a salad that typically includes cut up boiled eggs and regular mayonnaise.
Since I grew up in a vegetarian household we didn’t have pieces of ham in there like the traditional Russian (Olivier) salad does.
I didn’t want to eliminate this salad out of my life for good since becoming vegan, so I veganised it!
I haven’t eaten it many times since we moved to Australia, to be honest, but since I was converting most of my favourite recipes from my childhood, this one had to be in there! It’s so simple to make, the flavours are simple, but they work together really well. I used to inhale it as a kid!!
I’ve been playing around with ingredients to find the perfect balance of flavours for the vegan mayonnaise and came up with something that was as close as I could get it to an egg mayonnaise without compromising too much on the taste.
