Cooking salad dressing "Ukrainian":

Step 1: prepare Salad dressing "Ukrainian" :.

The recipe for such a sauce is very simple and time-saving. It would seem that such simple ingredients, but what delicious salads are obtained when mixing these products. So, the first thing we pour sour cream into a deep bowl. If you choose between factory and home sour cream, I will take preference to the second! And all because homemade sour cream is more oily and, no secret to anyone, more natural. Therefore, such a product is stored no more than 3-4 days, even in the refrigerator. Therefore, if you use this sour cream, it is better to season salads immediately after preparing the dressing. Following the milk ingredient, add a tablespoon of mayonnaise. The fatter our ingredient will be, the denser the sauce mass will be and the less juice will form in the salad. And if you have a couple of free hours, you can make mayonnaise yourself. At the same time, it will be no worse than the factory one. I would even say it will be much tastier, more tender and more natural! Therefore, anyone who uses a blender or mixer can easily prepare a mayonnaise component at home. Now we need to peel a few cloves of garlic. To do this, take a knife, and so that the husk departs better, gently squeeze the ingredient on the cutting board with the handle of the knife. After - with ease we clear it of all inedible and we wash out under running water. We wipe the garlic with a paper towel so that excess liquid does not get into the dressing. Using a garlic mill, grind the garlic cloves directly above the bowl with the sauce ingredients. To make our salad dressing more aromatic use only black peppercorns! Its peculiarity is that it gives dishes a richer flavor and pungency. It turns out that if you grind pepper with peas immediately before adding it to the dish, it turns out to be more fragrant and fragrant compared to the already ground ingredient. Therefore, we take a mortar and with its help we grind our peas. After - add our ground component to the ingredients of the dressing in the bowl. All mix well with a hand whisk or fork until a homogeneous mass is formed.

Step 2: serve Ukrainian salad dressing.

So, Ukrainian salad dressing is ready! Now you need to put it for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator so that it is infused and saturated with the smells of its components! Important: cover something with a bowl, so that the dressing does not absorb other smells of products that are also stored in the refrigerator. To do this, you can wrap the container several times with dressing with cling film or cover with a lid from the pan, which is suitable for a bowl in diameter. Such a sauce can be stored in a cold place for one to two days, but no more! It is better to immediately fill them with salads and enjoy the freshness of taste. Good appetite!
