Salad - a great opportunity for the hostess to demonstrate ingenuity and imagination. I will tell you how I cooked new Christmas salads, how and what I replace the ingredients in case of absence.
- Poultry meat is wonderfully combined with mushrooms, carrots and boiled potatoes. The delicate taste of meat is complemented by nuts, lettuce and fruits: prunes, dried apricots, pineapples, apples and oranges. On the basis of these products will make an excellent salad.
- If there is no poultry meat, take squid meat. The main thing is to prepare it properly.It is enough to dip the meat in hot water for 15 minutes. Seafood may lose flavor if overdone during cooking. Scallops, shrimps and other marine life are thermally treated in minutes.
- Looks great dishes from fresh lettuce leaves. True, you can not cook in advance, because they become soft, lose color and volume. If you want to preserve the vitamins and the presentation of the leaves, tear them with your hands, and do not cut them with a knife.
- If there is no drying for the leaves, after washing, shake and place on a paper towel for a quarter of an hour. During this time they dry out.
- Season the salads with leaves and greens before serving.
