Step by step recipe with photo
"Crystal" salad is a beautiful festive salad that not only looks good on the festive table, but is also very tasty. Chicken broth jelly squares give the salad an unusual look and well complement the flavor of the whole salad.
There are several ways to serve salad. You can completely cover the salad with gelatinous squares, or you can decorate the top of the salad with fresh vegetables. I prefer the second option, vegetables refresh the salad, well, and decorate, of course. And you can also turn any salad into "Crystal". I made a fish salad with fish broth jelly. Very tasty too.
We will prepare all the products according to the list.
Boil the potatoes and eggs and let them cool completely.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes.
Boil the chicken fillet in salted water with the addition of bay leaves, allspice peas and half an onion. The water should be about 700 ml.
Drain the broth from the finished chicken fillet, let it cool to room temperature and pour gelatin into the broth. We leave the gelatin to swell, and we ourselves will return to cutting the components of the salad.
Cut the cooled chicken fillet into small cubes and add to the potatoes.
We also cut the pickled cucumbers into small cubes. Transfer the cucumbers to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
Grate eggs and hard cheese on a medium grater. We put them in a bowl.
Add mayonnaise, salt and black pepper to the salad. Knead the salad well.
Put a hemispherical bowl with cling film. Leave some plastic at the ends so that the salad can be covered and kept from airing while it is brewing.
Put the salad in a bowl and tamp it well with a spoon. Close the top of the salad with the edges of the film and send it to the refrigerator for an hour.
In the meantime, let's prepare the jelly. Pour the broth with gelatin into a saucepan and heat over the fire, BUT NOT BEFORE BOILING, stirring with a whisk so that the gelatin is completely dissolved in the broth. After that, filter the broth through a sieve or cheesecloth and pour it into a mold with a layer of 3-4 mm. We send the form with jelly to the refrigerator for 60 minutes. As a result, we get such a jelly.
Cut the frozen jelly into squares with a knife.
We take out the salad from the refrigerator, carefully transfer the salad to a dish, remove the film. Lubricate the top of the salad with mayonnaise using a silicone brush.
Now, starting from the bottom layer, we begin to lay our crystal bricks around the salad. I did two rows, since I will decorate the top with vegetables. You can cover the jelly salad completely.
Before serving, we decorate the ready-made "Crystal" salad with slices of fresh vegetables, olives, you can also add quail eggs. Turn on your imagination and make your salad original!
Serve the salad on a platter, and then cut into portions. The combination of a hearty salad with chunks of refreshing chicken jelly melting in your mouth.. it is delicious and unusual, just right for a festive table !!
Delicious and bright New Year holidays for you!
