Salad with pineapple, chicken, cheese and egg layers
Various supplements give spice to the salad, for example, walnuts are useful in themselves, and in combination with protein in cheese and chicken, they generally compensate for the lack of protein and trace elements in the body.

The second row lay out sliced fresh cucumbers.
Grated cheese with mayonnaise is the third layer.
Mushrooms pre-fry and mix with mayonnaise, they are the penultimate layer.
Put the pineapple cubes on top of this row.
How do you? It may seem that this version of the salad is a bit fatty. Then ease the mayonnaise with less fatty sauce options (yogurt, cream cheese).
