How to prepare the salad?

šŸ“Ž Start by placing the slicer on the table and preparing the small bowls for the ingredients. I like how all the ingredients are organized after cutting. Optionally, you can throw the ingredients into big bowl that you will use for the salad.

šŸ“Ž The tomatos come first. Cut them in half and then on the moon. The shape is not so important here, but the point is that the tomato pieces are not small. After slicing two to three tomatoes, put them in a bowl

šŸ“Ž Next, hard-boil the eggs. I always pour water into a pot, throw eggs in there, put on an induction hob and cook them at 80% of the hob's power. I set the alarm for 10 minutes. It all depends on what equipment you have, but generally the point is that the eggs are hard-boiled

šŸ“Ž After boiling the eggs, drain the water from the pot and pour cold water over them so that the eggs become colder and easier to remove the shell from them. So, until the eggs are at the right temperature, remove the shell from them. The shell lands in the garbage and the eggs, after peeling them, rinse with cold water. This is to keep the salad cold

šŸ“Ž Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and in half again so that the pieces also resemble half moons. Place all the pieces in a small bowl.

šŸ“Ž The next step is to prepare Mr. Cauliflower for cooking. You should cut off the leaves, if there are any, wash them thoroughly and throw them into a previously flooded pot with water. Also cook around 10-15 minutes on 80% of the induction hob. It is important that the cauliflower is not overcooked, but also that it is not too hard. It is worth trying a piece of it with a fork during cooking, provided that it has cooled down from the pot - all so as not to burn yourself.

šŸ“Ž After cooking the cauliflower, I suggest draining the water and pouring it cold so that it cools down, also contributing to lowering the temperature of the salad.

šŸ“Ž After draining the water, cut / divide Mr. Cauliflower into small bouquets, not too small and not too big, and throw all the pieces into a small bowl

šŸ“Ž The next step is to prepare the salad. Add the tomatoes and cauliflower to a large bowl and mix well.

šŸ“Ž In a smaller bowl on the side, it's time to prepare the sauce. Open the cream and pour half of it into a bowl. Add mayo. Cut into small pieces or squeeze the garlic and add it to the cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix the sauce thoroughly. You can prepare this sauce the day before and if you put it in the fridge it will absorb garlic more. It all depends if you like garlic.

šŸ“Ž Pour the prepared sauce into a large bowl in which Mr. Cauliflower and Mr. Tomato are waiting for him. Mix everything again

šŸ“Ž Cut the spring onion leaves into rings and put them in the salad. Stir again with a spoon

šŸ“Ž It is important that the eggs are placed last on top of the salad and do not mix them, because then the hard yolks would separate from the whites and the salad would lose its sparkle. Enjoy your meal, my friend.
