Chicken salad with carrots and cheese is prepared quickly. Delicious salad - simple, like all brilliant. The author of the recipe is the people, and the people, as we know, invent only delicious recipes! There are several options for cooking this snack - with boiled or smoked chicken, boiled or Korean carrots. I was preparing a lighter option for the stomach - from boiled chicken and carrots. The combination of smoked breast and Korean carrot looks appetizing, but this dish is hardly suitable for every day.
An important ingredient of the recipe is cheese. It is better to choose fatty soft cream cheese, which will give the snack a pleasant creamy touch.
The second equally important ingredient of the recipe is onions. Plain bulb can spoil the dish. To get rid of its sharp taste, pour boiled water over the sliced onion, and then marinate as indicated in the recipe.

Method of cooking chicken salad with carrots and cheese
We take a cold pre-cooked chicken, remove the skin, remove the meat from the bones. Meat cut into strips or disassemble into long fibers with your hands. Chicken skin in the salad is not worth adding, it is better to treat the nearest cat, I think it will be grateful.
Cut the carrot into small cubes or thin strips. If you are cooking with Korean carrots, then be sure to drain the marinade so that the chicken salad with carrots and cheese does not turn out “wet”.
We cut white salad onions into thin half rings. In a bowl, pour 100 ml of warm boiled water, add wine vinegar, put chopped onion in marinade, leave for a few minutes. To make the onion soaked with marinade, shake it with your hands.
We put sliced carrots and chicken in a deep salad bowl, discard the onions on a sieve, add to the rest of the ingredients. Then rub cheese on a fine grater.
Mix the sauce. Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, soy sauce and table mustard in a bowl, add ground red and black pepper and a pinch of granulated sugar. Mix the ingredients until smooth.
Season the dish with sauce, mix, leave for a few minutes so that the products “get acquainted” with each other.
We lay out almost ready chicken salad with carrots and cheese in a bowl, sprinkle with finely chopped fresh basil. Instead of basil, you can take any fresh greens - parsley, dill, green onions, here, as they say, everyone has their own taste ...
In the meantime, boil the quail eggs hard-boiled, after boiling we place in a bowl with cold water for a few minutes to make it easier to peel off the shell. We cut the quail eggs in half, decorate the appetizer and immediately serve to the table. Chicken salad with carrots and cheese is ready. Enjoy your meal!
This dish is simple and unpretentious, but tasty. It is suitable not only for a daily meal, but also will delight guests at the holiday table.
