Pour a tablespoon of 9% vinegar there and pour the same amount of salt. We put the pan on medium heat and after boiling we cook hard-boiled eggs 11 - 12 minutes.
Then, using a kitchen towel, remove them from the stove, fill them with cold running water and cool to room temperature.
After that, we clear the boiled eggs from the shell, wash off the fragments from them, dry them with paper towels from excess moisture, and set aside for a while.

Step 4: prepare the onions.


Now peel the onion, rinse it under a stream of cold water and dry the vegetable with paper kitchen towels. Then we put it on a cutting board and cut into half rings with a thickness of up to 5 millimeters. Leave the cut on the board and proceed to the next step.

We put the pan over medium heat and pour a tablespoon of vegetable oil into it. After a couple of minutes, put the chopped onion in the heated oil and fry it until golden brown, occasionally stirring with a kitchen spatula. This process will take no more 5 - 6 minutes. When the half rings of the vegetable change color from white to brown, transfer the fried onions into a deep bowl and cool to room temperature.

Step 6: bring the salad to full readiness.


Our salad is almost ready, it remains to make very little effort. In turn, we lay out boiled eggs, boiled chicken, pitted prunes, salad peppers and pickled cucumbers on a cutting board.
We cut these products into cubes up to 5 - 7 millimeters in size, transfer to a bowl with fried onions, season with mayonnaise and mix all the components of the salad until a homogeneous consistency.
