Cooking Bullfinch Salad:

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

The first thing we set to cook the following foods: eggs, potatoes and carrots. To save space and utensils, put them in one pan. Cook until tender, about 20-30 minutes. At this time, we will peel and finely chop the onion, which we put in a plate and scalded with boiling water so that he gives his bitterness to the water, which we will not need in the salad. Cut the ham into cubes or thin slices. Wash the tomatoes and dry them with a towel. Cut their hard part (without juice) into small cubes and set aside to wait for their turn. It is better to immediately separate part of the tomato for decoration. We rub the cheese on a grater, wash the greens and shake to rid it of excess moisture. We clear the finished eggs from the shell, cool and separate the protein from the yolk. And then, and the other three on a grater, put in different plates. Chill potatoes and carrots, three on a grater.

Step 2: Layout Bullfinch Salad.

When all the ingredients are ready, proceed to the preparation of the salad itself. Salad belongs to the category of puffs, which means that we will lay the ingredients sequentially, in layers, salt and lubricating each. Let's get started! On the beautiful salad bowl we spread the first layer - from grated boiled potatoes - giving it the shape of a bullfinch. The photo will help you with this. Further, by analogy - a layer of onions, ham, tomatoes, grated yolk, carrots and cheese. This is the last layer of salad, we also lubricate it with mayonnaise, and now the most interesting.

Step 3: Making Bullfinch Salad.

The salad turned out to be delicious, but without decoration it is difficult to say whether it is a bullfinch or another bird. First, we make another layer - from grated egg whites - these will be light bullfinch feathers. We continue to make out the salad with the help of slices of tomato, with which we will depict a bright abdomen, and olives, which are ideal for plumage. And do not forget to make a beak and an eye. The first can be represented using the same tomato, and the eye can be "drawn" with mayonnaise. A sprig of dill will play the role of the branch on which our bullfinch sits. The salad is ready and decorated, you can put it in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours, so that it is properly saturated.

Step 4: Serve Bullfinch Salad.

Salad "Bullfinch" will decorate your table, will surprise guests with decoration and taste. Serve chilled salad and enjoy! Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - You can change the composition of the salad at your discretion and desire, the main thing in it is the design.

- - It is more convenient to apply mayonnaise with a "net" and not to smear, so as not to displace or confuse the ingredients. Mayonnaise in soft packaging with a dispensing cap is best.

- - Tomatoes can be replaced with red bell pepper. If you make a salad with chicken, then use prunes instead of olives.

- - The smaller you chop the olives and tomatoes, the salad will look neater.
