New Year’s salads, popular in Russia, cause a lot of criticism from nutritionists due to their high calorie content. However, if you take the Olivier salad, the most popular on the festive table, there is a way to make it much less harmful to health and shape – for this you need to replace some of the ingredients.
Thus, nutritionist of the SberZdorovye medical online service Margarita Makukha urged Russians to replace boiled sausage in salad with boiled beef – this will noticeably reduce the degree of harm from the dish.
Unlike processed sausage meat, beef has no preservatives or additives, and it also has more protein and less fat.
Also in Olivier you can reduce the amount of sugar and salt by replacing pickled cucumbers with fresh ones. In addition, it is better to fill the salad not with store-bought, but with homemade mayonnaise of your own preparation – there are a great many recipes for its preparation on the Internet.
The specialist noted that following her recommendations, it is possible to halve the calorie content of Olivier.
Earlier it was reported that the cost of products for the preparation of the most popular New Year’s salads in Russia increased significantly . So, according to Rosstat, four servings of Olivier will currently cost Russians 416 rubles, which is 15 percent more than a year ago.
In turn, the same amount of herring under a fur coat will cost 209 rubles, which is a quarter more than last year’s price.
