This amount of Salad Olivieh works great for a party of about 20 if you prepare it alongside two or three other side dishes or appetizers. Of course it also makes a great appetizer or snack for smaller dinner parties. You can divide the ingredients according to the size of your party.
Feel free to adjust the amount of mayonnaise, lemon juice, and other ingredients to match your own personal taste.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C / 5 Gas), then spread the potatoes on a baking tray and bake them for about an hour . My potatoes were a hand full in size so 1h was enough for them. You can test one with a fork to know for sure if they are ready.
Boil approx. 6 cups (1.5 litres) water. Skin off the onions and garlic.
Shock the eggs with cold water and peel them. Grate them roughly into a large bowl.
Once the chicken breasts are cooled down pull them apart like pulled pork. Add them to the bowl with the potatoes and eggs.
Combine everything well and then add the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salty gherkins, frozen peas, and the remaining olive oil.
