Salads can be prepared in the form of snacks, in the form of a full dish, as well as in the form of a dessert. It all depends on what you want to see in the end, and what products you have. I suggest to choose from the proposed one which one is right for you!
The number 8 is the main symbol of the upcoming holiday. It would not be bad to cook a salad in this form. Although in this form it has been prepared for a long time, it invariably attracts the eye and pleases everyone who tries it. Moreover, each year it is possible not to repeat, but to prepare layers of ingredients of different composition.
The current composition is not very common, and therefore quite interesting. As one of the main components used pig heart. Although you can replace it with any boiled meat. And in this combination the dish turns out very tasty and not quite ordinary. And of course, truly festive and beautiful.

2. Eggs should also be boiled in advance.
Let them cool completely. Prepare all the necessary products so that they are at hand. Chop the onions as small as possible, and grate the carrots on a coarse grater.
The sweeter the carrots are, the tastier the finished dish will be.
3. Pour some vegetable oil into the pan and give it a good warm. Put onion and fry until golden brown. Send him a carrot and fry for a few more minutes. In the process of stirring to check the readiness of vegetables, and do not give them too blush.
4. When the vegetables are ready, send them finely grated garlic. Mix well and remove the pan from the heat, let them cool completely.
You can use a paper towel and throw carrots on it to remove excess oil.
5. The next step is to grate boiled eggs on a coarse grater. Transfer to a plate.
6. Cut the pickled cucumbers into medium cubes, then remove them into a separate dish. Try to taste them in advance, they should be moderately salty, and slightly sweet. Cucumbers should be delicious, so that they want to eat just like that. If they are too sour, it will affect the taste of the finished dish, and may even spoil it.
7. Cut the cooled pork heart into small pieces. First, on thin plates, and then grind into a large straw. It is not worth to shrink too much so that the “baby” does not turn out. The meat in the dish should be felt.
8. Grate hard cheese.
9. Now that everything is ready, you can proceed directly to the assembly of the salad. To do this, you need to take a flat dish and two glasses of the same diameter in order for our eight to be more even and neat.
10. Alternately lay out the sliced ingredients. Salt each layer as needed and soak it in mayonnaise. Although someone just mayonnaise is enough. As you know, it is already quite salty.
Layers are arranged in such a sequence.
- The first layer of our heart will go. Put it neatly around the glasses, forming a clear figure of eight. For convenience, put the mayonnaise into the pastry bag and squeeze it into the mesh on each layer of the salad. If there is no bag, then you can put it in a regular cellophane bag and cut off its tip.
- Then put the pickled cucumbers, also coat with mayonnaise. At the same time try to do everything carefully so that the shape of the salad is clear.
- Now spread the fried onions with carrots, add quite a bit of mayonnaise. Since this layer we already have the oil left over from roasting.
- Next come boiled eggs. They need to be laid out so that they close both the eights upwards and its sides. Lightly season with mayonnaise.
- Next we have a line of cheese. It should be laid as the previous layer, «wrapped» them the whole salad. Mayonnaise applied over the entire surface of the eight.
- In the end decorate the salad with canned corn, which should be laid out only on its surface.
11. Carefully remove the glasses from the salad, if necessary, correct its shape. Decorate with greens, in this recipe we used dill. Give the salad to soak, for this you can put it in the fridge for a couple of hours. And then you can serve.

This salad invariably delights guests when they see it on a festive table of any level. And the holiday of March 8, of course, is no exception. Therefore, despite the fact that the recipe has already been published on the pages of my blog, I again decided to include it in this collection.

- chicken fillet — 400 gr
- eggs — 4 pieces
- potatoes (medium) — 3 pcs
- onion — 1 pc
- processed cheese — 2 pieces
- Vinegar 9% — 1 tsp
- sugar — 1 tsp
- boiling water for marinade
- mayonnaise to taste
- salt — to taste
Salt can not add. Chicken fillet is boiled in salted water, onions are pickled, and cheese and mayonnaise are already quite salty.
1. Boil potatoes and eggs in advance. Boil chicken fillet in lightly salted water. Allow the vegetables and meat to cool completely.
Prepare all the necessary products so that they are on hand.
2. Also pickle onions in advance. To do this, it should be finely chopped, pour into a small bowl and add sugar. Pour boiling water and add vinegar. Mix everything and leave to marinate for 10 minutes.

3. In the meantime, he marinated, cut the chicken meat into small cubes. They should not be very large, but they shouldn’t be cut too small too.
Transfer the meat to a serving plate and place the mayonnaise in the form of a “net” so that it just soaks the first layer. You can cook the mayonnaise yourself, it will taste better. Moreover, it can be done quickly and quite simply.
To squeeze mayonnaise thinly, you can use a regular plastic bag, since it is not very convenient to lubricate the layers with a spoon. To do this, put the sauce in the bag, and simply cut off the tip, then squeeze it out on each of the layers in small portions.
4. In the meantime, our onions have already been marinated. Do not keep it in the marinade for a long time, it will become sour. Thoroughly squeeze it and try. If he is such that he wants to eat just like that, then leave it like this. If it turned sourish, then rinse under running cold water.
Put it on top of the meat. And since it is juicy by itself, it is not necessary to lubricate this layer additionally.
5. The next layer will be boiled potatoes, you need to grate it on a coarse grater. It is necessary to grease the top with mayonnaise, as the potatoes themselves are rather dry.
6. Next, separate the yolks from proteins. Grate the yolks and place on top of the potatoes. Spread evenly and soak in mayonnaise.
7. The next layer will give this salad a delicate creamy taste. Cream cheese grate on a coarse grater. You can hold it for a few minutes in the freezer, so it will be more convenient to rub it. Put on top and smear with a small amount of mayonnaise.
8. The final layer is egg white. It should be grated, like the previous components, but it is not necessary to lubricate with mayonnaise. It will serve as a kind of decoration. A loose layer of proteins will give the salad weightlessness and lightness.
Here is such a simple recipe for cooking. It is so simple that even a novice cook can handle it, and can easily make a delicious salad. Thus, he will certainly delight their loved ones.
