"Christmas Garnet Wreaths Salad" {Салат Гранатовый браслет}

 "Garnet Wreaths Salad" - a very delicious salad, one might even say - spectacular. It could be  decorated for any holiday ~ especially for Christmas. Pomegranate seeds add color and, of course, a yummy taste.





Ingredients:

3-4 Beets
1 med Onion
3-4 Potatoes
2 large Carrots
4 Eggs
1.5 cup diced cooked Chicken
1 Pomegranate
1/2 cup Walnuts
3/4 cup  Mayonnaise
Salt, pepper

Boil (or bake) Beets, carrots, potatoes and eggs. 
Boil chicken and cut into cubes.
Cut onion in to small cubes and marinade in (1 cup water, 2 tbsp sugar, 4 tbsp vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt) .

         Layers are:        (don't forget to salt layers too)
1) potatoes - mayonnaise;
2) half - beets, mayonnaise;
3) carrots, mayonnaise;
4) walnuts;
5) half chicken, mayonnaise;
6) pickled onions;
7) egg, mayonnaise;
8)Last half chicken, mayonnaise;
9 ) Last half - beets, mayonnaise.
Remove the glass and add mayonnaise all around.
Decorate with pomegranate seeds.



I like to saute the chicken in butter for a few min. And add coriander, black pepper and vegeta seasoning. This step makes it more tasty :).
The easy way to get pomegranate seeds out is to cut it's skin in 4 and then tap with something. It comes out really easy.




Peel and grate potatoes, carrots, beets and eggs. Chop nuts. Use a ziplock bag to add mayo the salad layers.

Put a glass in the middle of the 12 in plate so, the salad will look like a wreath.
