Well presented salad, that will stand out at the table. Quite easy to make and requires few ingredients.
Chicken breast- 2 pieces, boiled and chopped in small pieces
Potatoes- 4 medium, boiled with a skin, cooled, peeled and grated.
Eggs- 6 boiled and finely chopped or grated.
Champignon mushrooms- 1 can, finely chopped, leave a few for a decoration.
Cheddar cheese- -200 g, grated
Gherkins- 4 medium, finely diced.
Mayonnaise- 250 g
French fries (dried chips)- as necessary for decoration
Olives for decoration
Salad leaves for decoration.
Lay down some salad leaves on a big flat plate.
Put a first layer of grated potatoes in a shape of a hedgehog and smooth a mayo on top.
Then put layers as follows-mushrooms mixed with gherkins,chicken, eggs, cheese all layers smoothed with mayo. The last layer- cheese will give a salad a bit more of “hedgehogy” look. If your ingredients are falling all over, just pick them up and with your hands and form a shape, just like working with a Plasticine.
Put the salad in a fridge for a couple of hours, so it sets.
Take it out and decorate with french fries as spikes, and use olives for eyes and a mouth and some mushrooms on top. The crispiness of the fries, will give a nice crunchy flavor, and the whole salad is divine, not to mention well presented.
