Making carrot and egg salad:
Step 1: Cook the eggs.
Place the chicken eggs in a small pan, completely fill them with water and put on fire. Wait for the liquid to boil, then turn down the power and continue to cook the eggs. 12-15 minutes. During this time, the ingredients are hard boiled, as we need.
Cool the finished eggs by placing them abruptly in ice water. When they have completely cooled, remove, peel and cut into small cubes.
Step 2: Prepare the carrots.
Carrots do not need to be cooked to make this salad. But you need to properly prepare the root crops, first having cleaned the skin from them, and then thoroughly rinsing each of them under running warm water.
Grind carrots prepared in this way by passing them through a medium or fine grater, depending on what you like best.
Step 3: Prepare the garlic.
Peel the garlic cloves and pass through a special press, or rub them in the same way as carrots before.
Step 4: Mix the carrot and egg salad.
All previously prepared ingredients, namely: eggs, carrots and garlic; put in a deep plate, season with a mixture of sour cream and mayonnaise and mix thoroughly. Be sure to taste it, if in your opinion it turned out too fresh, add a little salt, but usually this is not required.
