Spring salad: a recipe with cabbage
These snacks, due to the vegetable component, are low-calorie. The only thing that confuses dieters is sauces. Indeed, in mayonnaise or sour cream so many calories! But this spring salad recipe has provided for cooking entirely or almost completely without sauce. Ideal for those who watch their figure! We shred a small head of cabbage, salt it and put it with our hands.This is done to make the juice, otherwise the salad will turn out to be bland and will require a lot of sauce. Finely cut parsley and dill. Slightly strain cabbage. We cut several tomatoes into slices. Mix all ingredients. Season with special aromatic salt. If you still decide to refuel, mayonnaise or sour cream should be put immediately before eating salad, otherwise it will let in a lot of liquid.

Two hundred grams of pickled mushrooms strain off and also, if necessary, grind. Shred the onion in half rings and fill with boiling water. After ten minutes, the water is drained.

Next put the same layers of mushrooms, carrots, chicken. Do not forget all the mayonnaise coat. Top lay onions and eggs. Powdered salad with fresh herbs and put in an hour in the fridge. As an option, cabbage can be one of the layers in this salad.
