STEP BY STEP COOKING
How to make rabbit salad with ham, rice and corn? Prepare all the items on the list. Cheese is suitable for any hard varieties, I have gouda. Onions can be omitted if desired. Boil the rice until cooked according to package instructions. Cover the eggs with cold water and place on the stove. After boiling, reduce the flame and boil the eggs for 13-15 minutes.
At this time, take care of the rest of the products. Drain juice from canned corn. Send the corn kernels to a deep, comfortable cup.
Rinse half of a long salad cucumber and pat dry with napkins. Cut the cucumber into small cubes. Send in a cup.
Chop the ham in the same way into small pieces and add to the corn and cucumber.
Drain the eggs, cool and remove the shells. Grate the eggs on a grater with large teeth and add to all other ingredients.
Add boiled and slightly cooled rice to the salad bowl.
Salt the salad to taste, pepper and season with mayonnaise. Too much mayonnaise should not be used, otherwise the salad will not hold its shape. Mix everything thoroughly and taste. Salt if necessary.
At this stage, you can add finely chopped onions and herbs if desired. The salad turns out delicious with and without onions. Mix everything again.
On a flat oblong dish, form the head and body of the rabbit. For convenience, use rubber disposable gloves.
Cut two small semi-ovals from hard cheese and set aside (these will be the ears).
Grate the rest of the cheese on a fine grater. Put it in a thin layer on the salad, pressing lightly with your hand.
Cover the entire surface of the future rabbit in an even layer.
With the help of parsley or dill, lay out a line, as in the photo, to visually separate the head from the body.
Insert a toothpick halfway into each ear, as shown in the photo.
Attach the ears to the rabbit’s head.
Cut an olive or olive in half and form eyes on the head. The nose can be made from a small piece of ham or carrots.
Arrange the parsley or dill on a platter and decorate the rabbit as you like. For decoration, use ham, cheese, carrots, cucumber or olives.
Send the finished salad to the refrigerator to brew and cool for a while.
Such a salad in the form of a Rabbit will become a real decoration of your New Year’s table.
You can also make it for Easter.
Both adults and children will like it!
Enjoy your meal!
The skin, if it is not rough, not damaged and not bitter, does not need to be cut from cucumbers.
The salad will look beautiful and neat if you cut all the ingredients into pieces of the same size and shape (for example, cubes).
How to boil hard boiled eggs? So that the eggs do not crack during cooking, put them in cold water and put them on a boil over low heat. Boil the eggs for 9 minutes after boiling, then cover with cold water and cool. From a sharp temperature drop, the shell will be better cleaned.
Mayonnaise is better to cook yourself. It will be tastier and healthier.
Also, as a dressing, you can use not only mayonnaise, but also sour cream or natural yogurt. They can be taken separately or mixed with mayonnaise in any proportion to your taste – this will reduce the calorie content of the dish.
