Cooking Russian Beauty Salad:

Step 1: prepare and cook chicken eggs.

First, using a soft kitchen sponge, it is very gentle, but carefully wash a couple of raw chicken eggs. This must be done so that they do not leave any kind of contamination, as well as harmful microbes that can leak through the pores of the shell during heat treatment! Then we send this ingredient to a small saucepan and fill it with purified cold water. Add a couple of tablespoons of salt and 9% vinegar. We put the eggs on medium heat and after boiling we cook hard boiled 10-11 minutes. Then, using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a bowl of ice-cold liquid and completely cool.

Step 2: prepare the tomatoes.

Meanwhile, we wash the tomatoes, dry them with paper kitchen towels, using a sharp kitchen knife, cut each fruit into 2 equal parts and remove from them the place on which the stalk was attached. After that, we take out the seeds with juice from the slices of the vegetable with a teaspoon, they can be used to prepare any other dishes, and chop the flesh in small cubes and transfer to a bowl of medium depth.

Step 3: prepare the ham.

Then we remove the artificial or food casing from the ham, put it on a clean board, cut it in the same way as the previous ingredient, that is, tomatoes, and send it to a clean bowl.

Step 4: prepare the boiled chicken eggs.

Then we take the cooled eggs, remove the shell from them, wash them from splinters, dry them and chop them into thin strips, or again into cubes.

Step 5: prepare hard cheese.

Now we cut off the paraffin crust from the hard cheese and grind the dairy product on a fine, medium or large grater directly into a clean small plate. We put the rest of the necessary ingredients on the countertop and proceed to the next, almost final step.

Step 6: bring the Russian Beauty salad to full readiness.

We spread in a deep salad bowl in an even layer all prepared ingredients, at the same time soaking each with a generous portion of mayonnaise. First comes the ham, and then the tomatoes.

Further eggs and, of course, hard cheese, which is not worth pouring with mayonnaise. Then we tighten the dishes with the finished dish with plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator on 20-30 minutesand after that we taste.

Step 7: serve the Russian Beauty Salad.

Russian Beauty Salad is served chilled as an appetizer before main courses. Very often, before serving, it is decorated with olives, olives and pickled mushrooms, as well as sprigs of fresh herbs, such as dill, parsley, cilantro and basil. Also, such a wonderful meal can be a great hearty and, at the same time, light breakfast or dinner, or a great addition to lunch. Enjoy delicious and easy-to-cook food!
Enjoy your meal!
