Preparation of salad "Mercury":

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

We wash the prunes with cold running water, scald with boiling water and finely chop. We also wash the cucumber, scald and three on a fine grater. Boil chicken: fill it with cold water, salt to taste and cook 30 minutes after boiling. We take the finished chicken out of the broth and cool it. Cut the chicken into small cubes or disassemble it into fibers with your hands. We clean the onion, cut into small cubes and fry together with mushrooms in a vegetable oil in a pan 10-15 minutes. Hard boiled eggs. To do this, put them in boiling salted water (salt is needed so that the eggs do not crack and the protein does not leak) and cook 8-10 minutes over medium heat. Then we drain the water, and fill the eggs with cold water and let them lie in it 2-3 minutesthen the shell will be cleared more easily. We clean the boiled eggs and three on a fine grater.

Step 2: collect the salad.

The salad is laid out in layers on a plate using a split (with detachable sides) round baking dish. Each layer, with the exception of the layer with mushrooms and onions, is smeared with mayonnaise. We put the prune with the bottom layer, evenly distribute and squeeze it, top with mayonnaise (spread it evenly over the entire surface of the prune), then, by analogy with the prune, lay a layer of chicken, mushrooms with onions, eggs and, finally, the cucumber with the final layer. Give salad couple of hours infuse in the fridge.

Step 3: Serve the Mercury Salad.

We take out the finished salad from the refrigerator, remove the form and serve. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - Boiled chicken can be replaced with smoked.

- - Cucumbers can be cut into thin slices - so they will look better in a salad, but grated cucumbers taste better.

- - Instead of a baking dish, you can use the center cut out of a 3-liter plastic bottle.

- - Layers can be made single and thick, but can be made thin and repeated.
