For which I especially appreciate the salad with tongue and pickles, it is for its absolute genius. The tongue is soft and firm, the pickles are firm and crispy. The tongue is salty, the cucumbers are sour. In general, an impeccable unity of opposites. I believe that hard-boiled eggs are still very good for the tongue with pickled cucumbers - this is the third texture with a neutral taste. But eggs are so, consider, for decoration and for an amateur, you can do without them.
The most important thing is to first boil the tongue properly, and then cool it well so that it becomes hard. I prefer salted or salted smoked tongues for such salads, although you can, of course, use raw. Simply salted is cooked without seasonings, and raw requires more salt, pepper, lavrushka (and everything with which you still like to cook meat). The boiling tongue should be completely covered with water and ensured that it remains covered even after it has been reconfigured and lifted in the pot.) Cook for about 2 hours (in a saucepan, less in a pressure cooker). The tongue should not become soft, it is better for salads to keep it firm.
Immediately after the end of cooking, while the tongue is very hot, pour cold water over it and immediately remove the outer white skin. The fingers will burn, but in another way, unfortunately, it does not come off. Let the tongue cool down at room temperature about received, wrap it in polyethylene and put it in the refrigerator for a long time. Better - for the whole night. The tongue should be completely stabilized, hardened.
To cut the tongue into strips, you should not take the root part - it is loose and falls apart easily. Therefore, I normally take the half on which the tip is for salads. If we take the root, then only the upper surface. They can be cut into perfect strips.
It is better to cut small cucumbers with washers. Large ones - in triangles or straws, as it is convenient for anyone.
Season the salad with sour cream and mayonnaise. You can only salt or pepper after you mix and taste everything. The degree of flavoring of the tongue and cucumbers could be different - what if you don't want salt anymore?
While the salad is marinating before serving, you can hard-boil the eggs. It is not necessary, but very interesting "on the bite".
In addition, as you can see, this salad itself is rather unsightly, and eggs decorate it.
If you serve salad with tongue and pickled cucumbers as a snack, in small portions, then the amount of ingredients given in my recipe will be enough even for 6 servings.
