No holiday is complete without tasty and attractive appetizers in the form of salads and cold dishes. They are so popular that guests often ask only for them, ignoring the second hot dishes. One of these appetizers is a quail nest salad. Seeing it for the first time on the table, all guests are surprised by its exclusive appearance, because the salad really resembles a quail nest veiled among the greenery.
Its history is very ancient and goes back to the times of distant Tsarist Russia, when noble boyars went hunting. It was in the hunting lodges that this hearty and unique dish originated, but in our recipe we will talk about its smaller brother salad, which saw the light of day after 2000. At the heart of the salad nest with quail eggs is the well-known garlic appetizer made from processed cheeses, but the frame for it is smoked suluguni cheese, the release of which in huge batches was organized only in the 2000s. Such a quail nest recipe is much simpler and easier to prepare, because it is created in just 10-15 minutes. Let's try to cook it together with improvised ingredients!
There is no need to talk about the benefits of cheese, because even small children know about it! In addition to filling the body with calcium, cheese, thanks to the lactic acid bacteria present in it, normalizes the work of the gastric tract, and the garlic note enhances and inflames the appetite. The use of quail eggs improves vision and memory, strengthens the nervous system. They contain 3-4 times more potassium, phosphorus and iron than ordinary chicken eggs.
Prepare such a juicy spicy snack at least every day - you will never get tired of its taste! If you do not have quail eggs available, then decorate the dish with quarters of a boiled chicken egg, and melted cheese can successfully replace regular low-fat cottage cheese. Most importantly, trust your imagination and create new dishes yourself.
