Potato salad (Russian salad)

This is the most traditional Russian salad we make for any holiday, and New Year’s Eve is the biggest holiday of all, when “Olivie” would be on all tables. What makes it more special is “leftovers”… You can eat it the next day and joke that the salad is from last year.
