Salad "Nest of wood grouses". Step-by-step recipe

  1. Let's start with the chicken breast. Let's boil it over medium heat, let's pour some water. Let's leave for a short while to cool down, then use a fork to divide it into fibers. Cut into cubes, straws and other forms in this salad is not worth it. The divided fiber of the chicken breast will give the salad a gentle taste of the chicken and will remain slightly noticeable.
  2. Cutting the salad is important is not unimportant. The simplest products can get a completely different look and even taste if you cut them in a different way. In the salad "Nest of wood grouse" absolutely all products have one form of cutting - straw. In the end, everything is amazingly shaped and shaped in the form of a nest.
  3. Ham cut into thin strips.
  4. Mushrooms cut into small plates.
  5. Boil three eggs, separate the yolks from the proteins. Now we will use proteins. We rub them on a large grater. We'll return to the yolks a little later.
  6. We connect all components in one deep bowl. Solim, pepper, add mayonnaise and mix. Mayonnaise I recommend to cook by yourself. On our site "I love to cook" there is a recipe for mayonnaise on milk without eggs and classic: you can use that recipe that you like - mayonnaise will be delicious, fresh and natural.
  7. Next, we will deal with potatoes. We clean it from the peel and cut it with a very thin straw. You can use the grate for carrots in Korean. If you have a food processor in your household, it should have a nozzle for shredding vegetables. Suitable is the one in which the potatoes will be cut into thin strips.
  8. For our salad, you should take potatoes, which is great for frying. These are varieties with a rosy tint of peel, the tubers should be elastic. Before frying, soak peeled (whole) potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes: from it will leave starch. Wipe with a paper towel and then cut.
  9. The potatoes were cut, now is the time to fry it. For frying, we need sunflower oil in large quantities: better refined. For frying potatoes, you can take a frying pan, or you can use a saucepan with a thick bottom. If you take a saucepan, oil can go less. Potatoes before and during hot - do not salt. It is important. Fry potatoes from both sides until golden brown. We spread it on a dish with a paper towel, we give time to take away excess oil. A little salt. When the potatoes have cooled down, we disassemble it into small pieces.
  10. Now it's time to decorate everything. Take the lettuce leaves. We wash them under running water. We will wet with a napkin and lay out on our dish in a circle. Top with a spoon, a delicious salad with mayonnaise - in the form of a nest. Inside we make a small depression. In the circle of our salad, we lay out fried potatoes, without affecting the middle of the dish.
  11. Now it is necessary to form eggs of capercaillie. To do this, put three yolks in a bowl, knead them with a fork. Three on a fine grater processed cheese and add to yolks. Finely chop dill, squeeze garlic and all this is filled with mayonnaise. Solim to taste. In my opinion, this mixture reminds everyone of the salad "Squirrel" from our childhood. Everything is very fragrant and tasty.
  12. From the received mass we form small eggs. In size: approximately, like quail. We put them in the center - the salad is ready.
