Making salad "Tender":

Step 1: make crackers.

A salad is prepared to the ridiculously fast in just 30 minutes, but like any salad, it will still have to stand in the refrigerator for a little time and soak. To start, turn on the oven and heat it to 65 - 70 degrees. On a cutting board with a knife, cut with 250 grams of bread crusts. Here I want to note that the loaves for this type of salad should be airy and if it is not a bit fresh, this is not scary, since the crackers prepared from it will still soften in the salad, saturated with mayonnaise. Cut bread from the crusts into small cubes 1 by 1 centimeter and lay the pieces on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. We put the bread on a baking sheet so that there is a small distance between the cubes, so that the crackers are fried quickly, evenly and not over-dried. Put the baking tray with bread in the oven on 7 to 10 minutes and periodically mix the cubes with a kitchen spatula, preventing them from becoming covered with a dark crust. Ready-made bread croutons are light beige, with a light slightly hard crust and soft inside.

Step 2: boil the eggs.

Now let's start preparing the eggs. We clean them from the shell so that there are no small fragments left. Separate the protein from the yolk and put on separate deep plates. Pour into a plate with yolks 250 grams of mayonnaise and knead the ingredients until smooth. Put the squirrels on a cutting board, cut into small cubes with a knife 7 mm in diameter and transfer back to the plate.

Step 3: chop the olives and prepare the cheese.

Open a jar of olives and pour the marinade from it, put the olives on a cutting board, cut them into rings with a knife and put in a deep bowl. Approximate ring thickness up to 5 millimeters. Now the cheese. Each hard cheese has a firm corrugated crust, it must be cut with a knife. Rub the prepared cheese on a fine grater directly into a bowl with chopped olives.

Step 4: mix the ingredients.

Finishing touch! Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, fill with mayonnaise, grated with boiled egg yolks, and mix the salad with a tablespoon. We do not add salt, since cheese and olives are already salted. Now, in order for the crackers to be saturated and the salad to be even tastier, you need to let it stand in the refrigerator for about 1.5 - 2 hours. A tasting awaits you ahead!

Step 5: serve the tender salad.

Gentle salad served cold on a plate. If you have prepared this salad for the holiday, you can serve it in a salad bowl or on a flat, round or oval dish, decorating it with olives or sprigs of parsley and dill. You can arrange the salad in portions on plates or bowls. This type of salad can be a side dish for stew or fried meat. This dish goes well with pork, chicken and turkey meat. This delicate salad can be washed with light white semisweet wine. Easy, delicate and delicious! Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - Eggs cook steep from 10 to 12 minutes.

- - For this purpose, the chicken eggs did not burst during cooking and retained their shape; they must be boiled in salted water with the addition of vinegar.

- - In order for the eggshells to be removed well during cleaning, they must be cooled in cold water.

- - If, after cleaning, small pieces of shell remain on the eggs, wash them under running water and pat dry with paper towels.

- - If you do not like white bread, you can make crackers out of brown bread.

- - Mayonnaise in this type of salad can be replaced with homemade or regular sour cream, sour-milk yogurt is also well combined with this type of salad.

- - Hard Russian cheese, you can replace any other types of cheese, to your liking. It can be such cheeses as processed hard cheese, feta cheese.

- - You can also add olives, fresh cucumber and apples to this salad. The combination of these ingredients tastes very good.

- - Mayonnaise with yolks can be beaten with a blender, especially if you make a salad for a large number of people and you need to cook it quickly.

- - Sometimes boiled chicken is added to this type of salad. But remember that the meat for the salad “Tender” should be soft without coarse fibers and veins. Fillet or breast is perfect.
