  • 150 g hard cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 1 can of black olives (pitted)
  • large chips
  • mayonnaise to taste

Boil chicken until tender, separate the meat from bones and cut into small pieces. Chop the mushrooms, peel and chop the onion and sauté mushrooms with onions. Eggs boil hard boiled, peel the shell and grate on a coarse grater. Hard cheese grate on a fine grater.

  • First layer — meat chicken mixed with mayonnaise.
  • The second layer — fried mushrooms with onions.
  • Third layer — mayonnaise.
  • Fourth layer — eggs.
  • Fifth layer — mayonnaise.
  • Sixth layer — cheese.

The last layer can not be lubricated with mayonnaise. Instead, cut the olives into halves and quarters and lay them over the top of the cheese - these will be the seeds of your sunflower. Chips carefully stick around the edges of the salad - it will be petals. In the center of the salad you can put a little corn or a mashed egg yolk, and from the halves of a cherry tomato make a ladybug.

All layers, except the top, are smeared with mayonnaise, and the prepared salad is again decorated with olives and chips.
