The method of preparation of the salad "New Year's Fairy Tale" with fruit and cheese
In a salad bowl, grate tender fat cheese on a coarse grater. Cheese does not have to be hard; it needs to be soft and delicate in taste. Do not use cheese products to prepare this salad - to taste like an elastic band, and you will not find dairy products in them during the day with fire. We leave a little cheese to decorate the dish.
Throw the canned pineapple onto a sieve, let the compote drain. Finely chop the pineapples, add to the salad bowl to the cheese.
I wash a large bunch of grapes first with cold, then with hot water, rinse with boiled water, and dry. It is best to use seedless grapes, if the berries are with seeds, then you have to cut each in half and get rid of the seeds. Prepared grapes add to the rest of the ingredients.
Cut the garlic clove in half, take out a sprout from it. Rub the clove on a fine grater directly into the salad bowl. This salad can also be prepared without garlic, it turns out delicious.
Next, add olive mayonnaise. By the way, for dressing, you can mix homemade quail eggs mayonnaise with olive oil and wine vinegar - simple and useful.
Add Dijon mustard, this mustard, in contrast to the usual dining room, is softer, so it fits better.
Not only garlic gives sharpness to the salad; Wassabi sauce plays an important role here. Add the sauce to the salad bowl, if it is very spicy, then 1 teaspoon or half is enough.
Thoroughly mix the ingredients, try, salt to taste, freshly ground black pepper. Lovers of spicy food, you can season the appetizer with ground chili pepper, it goes well with juicy sweet fruits.
We put the culinary ring on the plate, put the snack in the ring, slightly tighten.
Rub the remaining cheese on a fine grater, sprinkle the salad on top.
We decorate the appetizer with whole grapes and sprigs of curly parsley. Salad "New Year's fairy tale" with fruit and cheese is ready. We put in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, serve chilled on the table. Enjoy your meal.
Happy New Year and Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!
