SALAD MIMOZA – Serving for 4:
4 medium Gold potatoes
8 Eggs, hard-boiled
320 g Smoked Salmon
4 tbsp Salmon Roe
2 cups mayonnaise
Salt, to taste
1. Place the carrots and potatoes in a pot, cover with water so that it barely covers the vegetables. Season with salt.
2. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 25-35 minutes.
3. Drain the water from the vegetables and cool them.
4. When they are cool enough to handle, peel them and chop into smaller pieces.
5. Hard boil the eggs. Peel the eggs and cut them in half to separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
6. Cut Smoked Salmon by hand into the small cube. Mix the Salmon with about 1/4 cup of mayonnaise and dill.
7. Assemble the salad: On a plate or in a glass, assemble the salad one layer at a time, and make 2 smaller salads, about 6 cm in diameter each.
8. Drizzling the mayo on top is much easier than spreading it on with a spoon. It also helps to keep the texture of the salad light and fluffy, instead of dense and compact.
9. For the last layer, finely grate the egg whites (3-4) only and drizzle with the same amount of mayo. This time, spread out the mayo with a spoon evenly on top of the egg whites.
10. Mash up the egg yolks with a fork in a small bowl, or press them through a fine mesh sieve. Sprinkle on top of the salad. I garnished the salad with salmon Roe.

雞蛋(煮熟) 8 只
煙三文魚 320 克
三文魚子 4 湯匙

7. 開始組合層層疊沙律: 選用平碟或玻璃杯, 先放蔬菜沙律在底, 每份直徑約6厘米.
9. 再加上蛋黃醬(如用調味擠壺協助加蛋黃醬會比用湯匙更為方便,更加平均, 從而影響口感,擠壺造的比較鬆軟).
10. 重覆7 , 8 , 9的步驟, 在器皿上造出兩層高的沙律.
11. 最後這一層可以放上3 – 4只蛋白碎加上同等份量的蛋黃醬(這一層的蛋黃醬可以用湯匙加上並輕壓使下層更結實.
12. 最後用叉把蛋黃壓碎(或可用鐵絲隔篩), 灑在層屠疊上, 並加一點三文魚子作裝飾.
