Peking cabbage is a very healthy product in itself, distinguished not only by a high content of vitamins, but also by a unique ability to preserve, in contrast to lettuce and white cabbage, its beneficial properties throughout the winter. Therefore, a salad made with Chinese cabbage will also be healthy.

In this article, we will tell you step by step how to prepare an awesomely tasty and satisfying Bride salad from Chinese cabbage with fried or boiled chicken, and show a photo of serving options.

What is this dish?

Bride salad - classic layered salad... It is usually served hemispherically shaped and sprinkled with grated protein, which makes it look like the hem of a bride's dress, hence its name. The beautiful appearance of this dish on the outside and the bright, colorful layers on the inside make it a good decoration for the table, which is why the "Bride" salad is often served on holidays. The salad is very quick to prepare, has a mild taste, but at the same time it is satisfying.

Ingredients

This salad is traditionally used for:

  • chicken;
  • eggs;
  • potatoes;
  • Chinese cabbage;
  • cheese.

This is a classic, but often something else is added to the salad, some housewives, for example, put a green apple. Chicken is usually taken boiled, but you can also take fried or smoked, hard cheese can be replaced with processed cheese. You can use any lettuce or cabbage instead of Peking cabbage, for example, Iceberg salad.

Composition and calorie content

One serving (100 g of salad) contains:

  • 218.7 kcal;
  • 4.3 g of proteins;
  • 18.5 g fat;
  • 9.4 g carbohydrates;
  • 1.2 g dietary fiber;
  • 64.8 g water.

An important beneficial ingredient is Chinese cabbage, which contains a huge amount of essential vitamins, it contains twice as much vitamin C and twice as much protein as white cabbage. On the other hand, there are not so many Chinese cabbage in the salad, only 4 leaves, so there is no need to say that this salad is extremely useful.

Reference! Despite the deceptively light taste, the Bride salad is quite high in calories, but its calorie content can be reduced by adding less mayonnaise or using boiled chicken instead of fried.

Cooking methods

Classical

Ingredients:

  • Chinese cabbage: 4 leaves.
  • Chicken fillet: 0.3 kg.
  • Potatoes: 2 pieces.
  • Eggs: 4 pieces.
  • Hard cheese.
  • Mayonnaise.

Preparation:

  1. Put the potatoes to cook "in their skins" and boil the eggs hard-boiled. If possible, it is best to do this at the same time, on different cooking zones, in order to save time. You can even do this in advance, say, half a day before preparing the "bride" salad.
  2. Wash and cook the chicken fillet.
  3. Peel the potatoes, grate them, add a little salt and place on a plate - this will be the first layer. In no case should you accept it, like other layers: the salad should be so “airy” to fully justify its name.
  4. Separate the yolks and whites, chop the yolks (for example, with a fork) and lay out in a second layer, remove the whites for now.
  5. Apply a mesh of mayonnaise to the second layer.
  6. Place the cooked chicken, cut into small cubes, in a third layer.
  7. Wash the Chinese cabbage, brush off any water droplets and remove the leaves. The hard white part should be cut out from the leaves. Cut into squares, lay out with the next layer, cover with mayonnaise.
  8. Grate the cheese coarsely and lay out in the next and last layer.
  9. Take out the proteins and grate them on a coarse grater, sprinkle them on the salad, cover it with a net of mayonnaise and let the salad sit in the refrigerator for two hours. Salad ready!

How to serve?
