Salad “Bird’s Nest”

Interesting and very tasty salad, that is probably good for celebrations, i am just making in it, on a casual Saturday.


Chicken breast- 2 pieces, boiled and cut in small pieces.

Eggs- 4 boiled,grated.

Cheese- 100 g, grated on a fine grater.

Fresh dill- 1 bunch

Potatoes-8  medium, cut in thin 3 mm strips.

Quail eggs-8, boiled.


Salt, pepper.


Heat an oil in a frying pan around 5 mm, and fry potatoes in 2 batches with a pinch of salt and a pinch of black pepper , till browned and crispy, set aside on a paper towel to cool.

Lay down the layer of lettuce on a large plate.

Mix all the ingredients, apart from potatoes and lay it down like this.


Then,add  fried potatoes around with a space in the middle.

Lay down a layer of lettuce in the middle and assemble quail eggs inside.

    This looks amazing! Do the potatoes get a little soggy since they’re refrigerated after frying?

    I love your posts, BTW! Love out of the ordinary recipes, I think they make the eating/dining experience so much better and enjoyable!

      Thank you very much. The salad is actually quite small and in an unlikely event,that it lasts till next day, potatoes do not get soggy at all, and still nice and crispy.:)
