What would New Year be without salads “Olivier” and “Herring under a fur coat”?! Culinary blogger Tom Cooks at Home shared her recipes for these beloved salads with Pravda.Ru readers.

Salad “Splash of Champagne” or “Crab Olivier”


  • crab meat: 200-300 g
  • olives: 1 can (300 g)
  • potatoes: 4-5 pcs.
  • egg: 5 pcs.
  • green peas: 1 can (400 g)
  • dill – 50 g
  • homemade mayonnaise – 3-5 tbsp. l.

What if you replace two ingredients in a regular Olivier salad?

  • Instead of chicken or sausage, we take crab meat, cut it finely, the size of a pea.
  • Instead of pickles – green olives, cut into slices.
  • Grate the boiled potatoes and eggs on a coarse grater.
  • Chop the dill.

Let’s assemble our salad. Season crab meat, olives, potatoes, eggs, peas and dill with homemade mayonnaise. Mix everything well. And so that the salad is not only tasty, but also beautiful, we will arrange it using culinary rings, in the form of a wreath. We spread the salad and decorate with dill on top. It is good for digestion, and the green color of the dill and the yellow color of the yolk in decorating the salad will delight the magnanimous DRAGON – the symbol of the New Year!

“Herring under a Fur Coat”


  • lightly salted herring – 1 pc.
  • onion – 1 pc.
  • potatoes: 2-3 pcs.
  • carrots: 1-2 pcs.
  • beets: 1 pc. (large)
  • eggs: 3 pcs.
  • mayonnaise: 2-3 tbsp. l. per layer or to taste
  • greenery.


  • Finely chop the fish and onion.
  • Pour boiling water over the onion (to remove bitterness)
  • Grate boiled or baked potatoes, carrots and beets on a coarse grater
  • We also grate the eggs on a coarse grater, leaving two yolks for decoration.
  • We collect the salad in a culinary ring, coating each layer with mayonnaise.

Layers: potatoes, onions, herring, carrots, eggs, beets. And decorate with finely grated yolk and herbs. Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
