Russian New Year salad: year of the snake, potato style

2013 will be the year of the snake so the editors of the Mendeleyev Journal plan to introduce several recipes in preparation for the great New Year 2013 celebration! The first recipe is a potato snake.

Those who’ve eaten snake claim that it tastes “just like chicken” and we’re about to prove them right with this New Year’s snake salad with chicken.

Ingredients:

2-3 cucumbers, either fresh or 5-6 pickled.

1 large can of olives.

4-5 medium/large boiled potatoes.

3 eggs, boiled.

2 pieces of fresh chicken.

Cheese curds or package of grated cheese.

2 small carrots, boiled.

1 can/tin of corn.

Preparation:

Marinate the chicken meat with lemon juice and sprinkle with chopped dill, then boil in lightly salted water until done, then allow to cool completely.

After the chicken has cooled separate the meat from the bones and cut into small pieces.

Put the eggs, potatoes and cheese through a coarse grater prior to chilling in the fridge.

Chill the ingredients for 30 minutes.

Mix the prepared ingredients with mayonnaise, pepper and salt; then form a snake on a platter.

Olives are cut into half and thin rings of cucumber are sliced into thin circles.

Carrots finish the snake, cucumbers and olives are used to form scales and in the center of each olive place a kernel of corn. The eyes of the snake are made of olives and the tongue of carrot.

In other developments, the Mendeleyev Journal is now easier to find. We’ve added new urls: www.mendeleyeevjournal.ru or from www.mendeleyevjournal.com.
