  • 2 carrots
  • 3 potatoes
  • 2 bulb onions
  • 1 fresh tomato
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 300 g hard cheese
  • 250 g canned champignons
  • 100 ml vinegar (9%)
  • several parsley twigs
  • mayonnaise – to taste


Peel, wash, and finely chop bulb onions. Transfer the onion to a bowl and pour it with boiled water (until water will cover the onion). Then pour vinegar above. Mix everything and set aside for a while.

Boil chicken breasts. Cool and cube the meat. Then dice canned mushrooms.

Now we’ll arrange our ingredients in layers. The first layer is the chicken. Grease the meat with mayonnaise. Put the champignons above the chicken.

Take the onion and drain water. Place the onion above the mushrooms. Do not grease the mushroom and onion layers with mayonnaise. Do not press each layer with your hands, in that case we’ll get a light and fluffy salad.

Boil and peel potatoes and carrots. Grate the potatoes on a coarse grater just above the dish with the salad, spread the grated potato evenly above the onion.

Don’t grate the potato separately since in that case the salad will not be airy. Grease the potato with a thin layer of mayonnaise.

Then grate the carrots on a coarse grater. Grease the carrot layer with mayonnaise. Grate hard cheese on a fine grater.

Put the salad in a fridge for 2 hours. Arrange washed parsley twigs and tomato wedges on top to garnish just before serving.

Enjoy your meal!
