The method of preparation of appetizer "Raffaello" from smoked chicken with walnuts

Peel the carrots cooked in their uniforms, rub them on a large vegetable grater. All the ingredients for making Raffaello snacks should be cold, so boil and cool the carrots in advance.

We put walnuts in a colander, rinse, pour on a baking sheet, dry in a preheated oven for several minutes. You can also fry nuts in a dry frying pan over low heat. Grind the cooled nuts in a blender, add to the grated carrots.

Hard-boiled eggs, chop. We rub the processed cheese on a coarse grater. Add eggs and cream cheese to the salad bowl.

Cut the smoked chicken breast into small cubes. We remove the skin, it is not worth adding to snacks. Add chopped chicken to the rest of the ingredients.

To taste, salt and pepper, season with mayonnaise, mix thoroughly, put the salad bowl in the refrigerator. By the way, the mayonnaise for Rafaello snacks can be mixed in a blender made from raw egg yolk, 70 ml of high-quality olive oil, a teaspoon of Dijon mustard and a teaspoon of wine vinegar. First, beat the yolk with salt, then add a thin stream of oil, then mustard and vinegar. Mayonnaise is thick and tasty, without preservatives and starch, not like a store.
