The weather is too hot to spend a lot of time around the pots and pans… yes, I said it! I’m surprising myself but during these hot days I feel like simpler food, that involves less cooking time and sometimes no cooking at all… Ok, I still have to feed the rest of my household but even them are happy with my summer food… And they do live my Olivier salad with seafood
Olivier salad is known all over the world with most counties calling it “Russian Salad”. And everyone knows how to cook it and how to adapt it to their own taste. So I’m not trying to teach you how to do it or change the way you like it… Just decided to share one of my several versions of this famous salad.
Most of the time, I go traditional and stick to vegetables and/or meat dressed with mayonnaise. Other times I jump to the fish side 🙂 Back home we like to add tuna to this salad. It’s a popular dish to take to the beach, picnics and barbecues. But it’s such a versatile dish that you can put your touch every time. In this version, I used shrimps and a bit of surimi I had in the freezer… Oh what a nice dish for a day like this 🙂
