Making a salad with french fries:
Step 1: Prepare the eggs.
We start preparing the ingredients for the salad with eggs. Put them in a pot of water and put it on medium heat. Boil eggs 10 minutes after boiling. Then turn off the heat, drain the hot water and place the eggs for a couple of minutes under running cold water, then leave to cool.
When the eggs have cooled sufficiently, they need to be peeled and chopped. Choose any slicing method. You can simply cut the egg in half or in four. If you have a special egg slicer - wonderful, you can make beautiful and even circles. Transfer the chopped eggs to a plate.
Step 2: Prepare the chicken breast.
Cut the chicken breast into small pieces. Fold in a bowl, add soy sauce, salt a little (soy sauce is already salty), mix and let stand for 15 minutes. At this time, you can do other ingredients.
Put the pan on the fire, pour a little oil and fry the meat until cooked. The brisket is cooked very quickly, especially small pieces, 5-6 minutes are enough. If overcooked, it will turn out a bit dry. Transfer the fried pieces of chicken to a plate.
Step 3: Prepare the cucumbers.
Before cutting cucumbers, be sure to try a piece. If they are bitter, it is better to cut off the skin. Cut the cucumbers into thin circles, transfer to a plate.
Step 4: Prepare the cheese.
It is better to take hard cheese, it is convenient to rub it. If you want to impress, you can cut the cheese into thin strips. But then you have to work hard. Put the cheese on a clean plate.
Step 5: Prepare the cabbage.
Peking cabbage cut into strips with a thickness of about 1 cm. Put in a bowl.
Instead of Beijing cabbage, you can safely use white cabbage or lettuce. Then lettuce leaves tear hands into small pieces; finely chopped white cabbage, before serving lettuce it will need to be salt and mashed a little with your hands - it will empty the juice and become softer.
Step 6: Prepare the tomatoes.
If you use cherry tomatoes or others of the same size, just cut them in half. Very small tomatoes can be used as a whole.
Step 7: Cooking French Fries.
We start to cook fries after all the ingredients have been prepared, just before serving the salad. French fries do not retain their crispy properties for long.
Peel the potato tubers, wash, dry and cut into thin cubes. Wash and be sure to dry on a paper towel.
Put the pan over medium heat, pour vegetable oil. When the oil begins to boil, you can begin to fry the potatoes.
If you cook a lot of servings of salad and plan to fry a large amount of potatoes, then it is better to do this in several stages. Put so many potatoes in the pan so that the sticks float freely in the oils and do not lie on top of each other in layers. Do not salt the potatoes yet, the salt draws moisture and prevents the formation of a crisp. When the potatoes are fried from all sides, transfer it to a plate covered with a paper towel - it will absorb the excess oil, and then into a clean, dry plate. Only now you can salt the potatoes.
Step 8: Cook and serve a salad with french fries.
The process of making salad is closely related to its serving. In fact, you will cook it on every plate.
Arrange the plates in which you will serve the salad and spread the vegetables in each first: Peking cabbage, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes - add a little salt and sprinkle with black ground pepper; put pieces of fried chicken fillet and chopped eggs on top. At the top, the main ingredient in the salad is french fries. Sprinkle the whole structure with grated cheese and serve immediately.
