Salad "Watermelon". Step by step recipe
- Rinse the chicken fillet well, boil, cool and cut into small cubes (it is most convenient to cut across the fibers). Place the cut fillet in a salad bowl.
- Boil hard boiled eggs, peel and grate on a coarse grater. Leave in a separate bowl.
- We grate hard cheese on a fine grater. Also leave in a separate bowl.
- Cut olives in circles (take olives without stones - this simplifies cooking).
- To decorate the salad, you need to leave a little hard cheese and olives.
- The rest of the chopped ingredients need to be combined, salt and season with mayonnaise. Mix all this thoroughly until smooth.
- I wash fresh cucumbers and three on a coarse grater (I clean the middle with seeds from the cucumber, try to use only green peel: we take the cucumber to depict the watermelon crust).
- Wash fresh tomatoes and cut them into small cubes (I use a spoon to free the tomatoes from seeds and excess liquid. We take a tomato to simulate juicy watermelon pulp).
- We cut olives into four parts each - this will be used for decoration.
- On a flat plate we spread a homogeneous mass of chicken fillet, eggs, hard cheese, olives and mayonnaise in the form of a watermelon slice.
- We proceed to the decoration. On top of the resulting watermelon slice, we distribute the sliced tomato and hard cheese. On a tomato we put quarters of olives. On the sides we spread the grated cucumber, pressing it tightly with your hand (so that the simulated crust was even greener, I can add greens). It is necessary to arrange the ingredients so that it looks like a watermelon slice with the pulp up: that is, a watermelon slice. In order for juice from tomatoes and cucumbers not to leak onto the cooked salad, it is better to get rid of the middle of these vegetables and remove the seeds.
- The finished salad must be refrigerated so that it is saturated - and then served.
