How to make a salad in the form of a monkey
Many people probably noticed that the products in my salad selected are the same as for the salad "Olivier". But, in contrast to the traditional feeding dishes, I decided to each of the salad ingredients grate and spread layers.
So, salads start with the fact that the loan preparation of its components.
Boil the potatoes, eggs and carrots in a separate saucepan and brush those vegetables that need to be cleaned. Rub with boiled potatoes and carrots on a coarse grater.
The boiled eggs separate the protein from the yolk and then rub in separate containers in a fine grater.
Boiled chicken breast cut into long thin strips.
You can not cut and tear the meat along the longitudinal fibers hands.
Pickles need to cut thin, not too long straws.
When the ingredients we have prepared, you are ready to assemble the salad and design.
To do this, on a flat dish of medium size, try to put the salad layers so that the form was like a monkey's face, as in the photo. Each lettuce recoat layer need a thin layer of mayonnaise. If fat salad do not like the grease in just one layer.
The sequence of layers I have this:
3. pickled cucumber;
4. green peas;
6. boiled eggs.
As I spread layers visible on the step by step photos.
Note! In the photo you can see how I lay eggs: proteins at the bottom and the yolks in the top of the dish. Thus, it has turned a kind of animal faces. And remember to lubricate mayonnaise layers, ie. K. The upper, egg, lettuce layer remains without mayonnaise.
So all our New Year's meal is ready, it remains only to think about how to decorate the salad in the year of the monkey. I came up with here is a decoration: the circles of sausage making our fun monkey ears. I also cut out the spout of sausages. Eyes made of carrots and cilia in monkeys of chopped cucumber. For a long time thought of what I do, "smile" monkey. As a result, he used to smile a little bit of red pepper salad.
As originally decorate the salad in the Year of the Monkey, what products to use at the same time, every woman can decide itself, based on the presence of those or other products of his imagination and sentiment.
When finished decoration New Year's salad, to better soaked with mayonnaise, it is necessary to infuse the dish in the refrigerator for two to three hours.
My home tasters hardly wait until I let them try a simple but at the same time and the original salad "Monkey". They even said that it tastes much more "interesting" than the usual "Olivier".
