Is it not salad olviye? (Or however you spell it, originally invented by a chef called Olivier)

Great dish, my favourite Iranian starter

* You are supposed to eat it with a fresh warm Iranian naan! wth are you thinking!!

** Don't be the guy who goes to an Italian restaurant and asks for ketchup to on his pasta.

Yes its salad oliviye and it is delicious! Not sure if its originally Iranian though or if Iranian took it and put their spin to it which made it much better, thus why you know it as an Iranian dish, might be Russian originally.

Search the Internet for Salad Olivieh or Salad-e Olovieh. Every family in Iran has their own recipe, adding chopped vegetables they like, but the dish is 'Chicken Salad' made with chopped boiled potatoes, chopped pickles, (other chopped vegetables), combined together with mayonnaise, with olives for garnish. Hence the name Olive in the title of the dish. Some add chopped boiled egg for extra protein.

Thank you so much guys :) I have been googling and you are exactly right. 10 points to griffindor! (and 5 to slytherin because sis hameedah is an admin)

I really enjoyed it. i was working on something with some iranian brothers and one of their wives made lunch for us. the only iranian cuisine i know is white rice & kabob so it was a real eye opener for me!

These all look yummy, but most of the iranian food lack the right amount of salt, meaning they can taste abit bland. 

Shola zard ( a type of rice dessert) is very nice tho!

Me and @repenter have argued about this a lot. He seems to underrate Lebanese food... 

Why you keep saying food? Lebanese edibles are not food, they are appetizers! For years I went out of Lebanese restaurants thinking the restaurants suck because they never served me my food. Little did i know I had appetizer, dinner and dessert.

Yes, food. I get full after eating Lebanese food for sure. Easily.

I think you're only posting memes now because I am proving you wrong :)

Lebanese kabab,.,,,,,ghahahahsfjkahgsfdjkahahahahaha

Only thing you proved is that you probably aren't a big eater if Lebanese "food" fills you up.

"Shawarma" 

Learn to read ;) Shawarma, and Kebab are both not from Lebanon, they just copied someone else, made it worse.

The point is not that they made it, it has become part of their cuisine!!!

:)

I will come back with more refutations later, using proof. You will see.

The original version of the salad was invented in the 1860s by a cook of Belgian origin,[1]Lucien Olivier, the chef of the Hermitage, one of Moscow's most celebrated restaurants. Olivier's salad quickly became immensely popular with Hermitage regulars, and became the restaurant's signature dish.

There are probably regional variations in the recipe.

'Chicken Salad' is universal. A Christian relative of mine buys halal chicken when my family is invited. She makes it her own style, using sliced green grapes instead of chopped pickles. I tell her it tastes great. It's always nice to have a halal meat option for dinner. :D
