A salad served in tartlets is a great idea for a buffet table. Thus, you can put any salad of your choice in portions. You can make tartlets yourself, but for a faster option, a store product is suitable. It is better to use shortcrust pastry baskets, they are denser than waffle ones, which means they do not soak so much.
I suggest filling your sand tartlets with crab stick salad - a tried and true recipe. The salad consists of products that create an ideal and balanced taste. After cooking, sand baskets with filling can be beautifully decorated. Complementing them with dill sprigs and carrot stars, you get small Christmas trees. Such an appetizer will perfectly decorate the table on New Year's Eve.
Free the crab sticks from the wrapper, cut into small cubes. The cutting of all the components should be medium-sized so that the salad looks more compact and beautiful in tartlets. Place the shredded crab sticks in a deep plate.
Rinse the fresh cucumber, wipe the moisture with a towel, cut it into cubes, add to the crab sticks.
Boil the eggs in advance until they are "hard boiled", cool them in water, scrape off the top layer, then also cut into cubes, toss to the other ingredients.
Chop hard cheese in the same way, add to the main composition.
Season the salad with mayonnaise, season with salt to taste, mix thoroughly. Choose thick mayonnaise, because the liquid product will soak the sand tartlets very quickly, and they will soften.
Fill the sand tartlets with the mixture.
Decorate the stuffed tartlets with small sprigs of dill. Cut the stars out of the carrots, put them on the filling.
Serve the salad of crab sticks in sand tartlets on the table immediately after cooking so that the sand baskets do not have time to soak in mayonnaise.
Enjoy your meal!
