As you know, probably everyone, the year that we will meet is the Year of the Yellow Dog. And of course, without salads in her honor can not do. Therefore, let’s start with them.
Original salad in the form of a dog for the New 2018 Year — a step by step recipe
This dish I was preparing for dinner yesterday. She found a picture on the Internet and decided to repeat it. And as the ingredients she took the main ingredients for the salad Olivier, well, with additives of course.
I myself have already written several recipes for this famous salad. And also not so long ago I met an interesting selection of them on one of the sites, here’s the link https://domovodstvo-kulinariya.ru/salat-olive-klassicheskijjrecept-s-kuricej-i-svezhim-ogurcom.html. I liked the idea that they could not only boil the chicken for the composition, but also fry or bake it.
And since we all love this salad, I decided that I would cook on its basis. The advantage of this is that it will be more convenient to form a figure of the future Symbol of the Year from a mixture of ingredients filled with mayonnaise.
- chicken breast — 1 pc
- boiled potatoes — 3 pcs
- onion — 1 pc
- boiled carrots — 1 pc
- hard cheese — 150 gr
- pickled cucumbers — 4 pcs (small)
- walnuts — handful
- black grapes — 3 pieces or olives)
- sour cream — 3 — 4 tbsp. spoons
- mayonnaise — to taste (about 6 tablespoons)
- salt to taste
1. Boil potatoes and carrots in advance. Allow to cool completely and peel. Then cut into small cubes. The smaller the cut, the easier it will be to shape the shape of the dog. Small pieces are well bonded and practically will not disintegrate during the creative process.
Prepare a bowl and immediately put the sliced cubes into it.
2. Cucumbers, I decided to use pickled, although you can take fresh. With them, the taste will also get a fresher note. By the way, if I cook such a dish the second time, I will use my own advice. And today I have Bulgarian pickled cucumbers of my own production. At the same time and try.
Their taste is sweet and sour, exactly like that of the famous Bulgarian cucumbers. And what else pleases is that they are very crunchy. So in the salad, they will be nice crunch.
Add to bowl and them.
3. Add also walnuts. To do this, just smash their hands into small pieces, or cut with a knife. To the dish they felt. We need just a handful, so we can handle it quickly.
4. Well, we also need a bow. With him there are different options. And now I will describe them:
- you can use just onion chopped into small cubes
- You can pickle it in a mixture of boiling water, salt, sugar and 9% vinegar (for 300 grams of water, a teaspoon of salt and sugar and two tablespoons of vinegar). This method can be recommended if you use fresh cucumber.
- onions can be fried with a little oil to eliminate bitterness
- can I take green onions
Choose any of your favorite options and add to the common bowl.
If the onions are pickled, then after the acidic water has been drained, try the product to taste. And if the acid turned out more than necessary, then you just need to rinse it with boiled cold water and squeeze.
5. Great! All connected. And now you need to lightly salt the contents and fill with sour cream and mayonnaise.
You can fill with only one mayonnaise. But we are now trying to keep its consumption to a minimum. Therefore, if the dish requires mayonnaise, then I try to make a 50×50 dressing, diluting it with sour cream.
6. But first, the contents need to be mixed to dissolve the salt.
By the way, if you have pickles, or pickled onions, then you can completely refuse from salt.
Put in a salad three spoons of mayonnaise and three spoons of sour cream and mix. In principle, this will be enough for a given amount of products. There should be a rather viscous mass from which it will be easy to form a figure.
7. Let’s start forming. Put two balls on the dish, one large for the body, the second for the head. Outline both. Then dock the hind legs and ears. The front paws, by default, remained hidden under our ears. That is, in other words, we do not form them.
Well, do not forget about the tail. Mouth in the front of the flat, thus marking its front and highlighting the forehead.
Everything! And now put the rest of the salad in the missing places. The “dog” was not very large, but rather neat and quite proportional.
8. Now you need to make a skin for her. I decided to make it out of cheese. It is slightly yellowish in appearance, which means it fully corresponds to the color of the Symbol of the Year.
Cheese is best to take hard. I have taken Parmesan. He rubs well on a fine grater and does not stick together, and the dog’s skin will work out like a real one.
And so, grate the cheese on a fine grater. It will turn out in the form of a short thin straw resembling hairs.
9. Grease the form with the remaining mayonnaise so that the “hairs” in its lower part stick and do not slide off. And then lay out the grated cheese, gently filling all the areas so that they do not shine through.
10. And the final touch. This make eyes and nose for our Dog. You can make them from black grapes or from olives. I cut the grapes in half and took out the bones.
That’s basically it. Our salad is ready! The dog turned out like a dog. Quite so fun for myself … I think the character of the Year will like it.
Delicious salad «Dog — Ryzhulya» for the New Year’s table 2018
And I also cooked this version of the salad not so long ago, and I hasten to share it. Moreover, the dog is very cute, and the contents are tasty.
If I prepared the last version on the basis of Olivier, then I prepared this one when I made a selection of recipes for salads from crab sticks. Therefore, if you like these dishes, then you will like this recipe.
- crab sticks — 200 — 250 gr
- eggs — 4 pieces
- boiled rice — 1 cup
- cucumber — 1 pc
- canned corn — 300 — 350 gr
- green onion — 0.5 bunch
- greens, parsley or dill — 0.5 bunch
- fresh carrots — 1 pc
- olives — 4 pieces
- mayonnaise — to taste
From this amount of ingredients you get a little more salad than we need. But it does not matter. If you put the leftovers on the table and call your loved ones, then in 5 minutes there will not even be a trace of him.
1. Boil rice to the state of readiness in salted water. Then let cool.
2. Crab sticks cut across into 3 — 4 pieces and disassembled into fibers. And if you want, you can simply cut into cubes.
3. Dice fresh cucumber and boiled eggs. Try, so that the size of the cubes was not very large. The smaller they are, the tastier the dish will turn out and the easier it will be to form the dog’s muzzle.
4. Cut the green onions and chop the greens.
5. Put all that is crushed in a bowl. Add a piece of rice, and leave some to decorate the face.
6. Drain liquid from the corn and add it to the total mass.
7. Season with mayonnaise and mix. As a rule, salt is no longer needed. Since we have rice cooked in salt water, and shrimps and mayonnaise are salty by themselves. But try, and if you find that you would like to add, then add.
8. Let’s start forming the face of our Ryzhuli. Everything is very simple here. From the already mixed mass put a blank, in the form of a dog’s face.
9. On a fine grater, rub fresh juicy carrots. Why fresh, because boiled carrots do not rub. It does not make such a shallow straw.
10. From the remaining rice to form the lower part of the face. Spread the rest of carrots with the grated carrots, including the side parts to create volume.
From rice to form a nose and eyebrows. Make olives from the olives and cut the nose. And also cut from them the eyelashes and highlight the area of the ears.
11. Decorate with fresh greens and pomegranate seeds, if any. Or arrange the dish as you like.
Here is a Ryzhulya we have turned out. I think the Symbol of the Year will be very pleased.
