Grandma's salad with extraordinarily full flavour

We can't eat only biscuits... so here's a recipe for a salad with chicken, mushrooms, and prune! It's a real masterpiece from my beloved grandmother!


  • 150 g prune
  • 400 g fresh mushrooms (champignon)
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g cheese
  • 1 fresh cucumber (medium)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oil for frying mushrooms
  • mayonnaise

  • boil the chicken breasts and cool them,
    how to boil the chicken breast: put the chicken in one layer into the bottom of the pot and add some salt (you may also add garlic, pepper, other species); fill it with water and bring it to a boil; reduce heat to minimum, cover the pan; after 10 minutes the delicate chicken breast will be ready, but the thick one will need about 15 minutes to be ready;
  • boil eggs and cool them,
    how to boil the eggs: place eggs into a large saucepan and cover them with cool water by 3 cm; bring water to a boil over medium heat; boil it for no more than 10 minutes or the yolk will become grey (that will ruin your presentation); put the cooked eggs into the pot with the cold water;
  • wash, cut, fry the mushrooms and cool them,
    how to fry the mushrooms: cut mushrooms and put them on the frying pan, turn on the heat to medium, add salt and mix everything, salt will help the moisture to release quicker; wait until all the moister evaporates; add the oil and fry the mushrooms until golden brown; add some pepper to taste;

  • grated cheese,
  • mayonnaise (thin layer),
  • grated eggs,
  • mayonnaise (thin layer),
