- fried champignons - 200 g;
- boiled chicken breast - 200 g;
- boiled eggs - 3 pcs .;
- hard cheese varieties - 100 g;
- egg yolks - 4 pcs .;
- potato chips;
- pitted olives;
- lettuce leaves;
- small tomato - 1 pc.
Spread the lettuce leaves evenly on the dish. Slightly more than the middle of the dish lay the rest of the ingredients. In addition, each layer is soaked with mayonnaise in the following sequence:
- finely chopped, boiled chicken breast;
- fried champignons;
- eggs, finely chopped;
- grated cheese;
- grated yolks with small holes (it is not necessary to water this layer with mayonnaise).
Cut the olives lengthwise into several pieces and place them on the yolks (they will represent the seeds). Send the salad to the refrigerator for several hours to cool. Shortly before serving, it remains to decorate the dish: spread chips along the edge of the salad, imitating sunflower petals. At the same time, lettuce leaves should be visible representing the leaves of a sunflower. You can make a ladybug from a tomato. For this, the vegetable is cut into two parts. Use one half of the tomato, cutting a narrow triangle on one side, resembling a slit of wings. And on the reverse side it is desirable to put an olive for the image of the head of a ladybug. Make cuts on top of the tomato and place the pieces of olives there to give characteristic marks. If desired, from the second half of the tomatoes, you can create a second "ladybug".
Enjoy your meal!
