Cooking "Pine cone" salad:

Step 1: Cooking the ingredients.

Let's start with the chicken. For this salad, you can take both fillet and breast. And even smoked chicken. The meat can be boiled, or you can fry it in a small amount of vegetable oil. For those who like more sharply, I recommend adding seasoning. I note that if you boil the chicken, then put it in a whole piece, and then cut into cubes, and if you fry it, then first chop it, and then transfer it to the pan. We put carrots, potatoes and eggs in one pan and cook until tender. Then we peel and peel the products, and do the following: Three eggs on a coarse grater, and cut the chilled carrots and potatoes into cubes or three on a grater. We turn to the mushrooms. To save time, I suggest using ready-made, that is, canned mushrooms. They do not need any additional processing, and we just finely cut them into cubes or plates. Cheese, it is possible and melted, we rub on a coarse grater, and proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Build the salad.

We spread the first layer of salad on a beautiful flat dish, giving it the elongated shape of the cone - ready chicken fillet, salt, pepper and grease with mayonnaise. The next layer is potatoes, then mushrooms, carrots and eggs. Each layer we salt, pepper and grease. But do not overdo it with seasonings, so as not to spoil the salad. The last layer is grated cheese mixed with mayonnaise, with which we cover the top of the salad and its sides.

Step 3: Decorate the salad.

To let the salad live up to its name, it needs to be decorated. Almonds, both raw and slightly fried, are great for this. The main thing - do not peel! Nuts must be stuck in the surface of the salad so that they resemble flakes of cone. When everything is ready, we send the salad to the refrigerator so that it is soaked with mayonnaise and cooled. To do this, he will need 2-3 hours.

Step 4: Serve the finished salad.

To give the salad the aroma of the New Year's holiday, add a sprig of pine or spruce to the plate with the salad. And now we take the salad bowl to the laid table and look forward to compliments! Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - If you use fresh champignons, then they need to be fried in a pan before adding to the salad. If fresh or dried forest mushrooms - then boil in salted water for about 20 minutes, and then fry.

- - Melted cheese will be better rubbed if it is previously held in the freezer.

- - The spicy aroma of chicken fillet during frying can add curry flavoring.

- - The denser the almonds, the more beautiful the salad will be.
