Mimoza Salad (Serbian= Mimoza Salata/ Мимоза салата)

Mimoza salad is a kind of a spread that has distinct layers of potatoes, sour cream, ham, cheese, eggs, etc. It is great to serve at parties as an appetizer, and it is easy to make. Even if you mess up the layers, your guests will like it.

3 potatoes
3 eggs
15oz ham, shredded
15oz shredded cheese
1 cup mayo
1 1/2 cup sour cream
parsley to garnish (optional)

Layer 1: Cook the potatoes and eggs. Allow them to cool. In a glass dish, shred the potatoes and equaly spread them out to form a base layer of mimosa salad.

Continue with mimosa layers. Make sure you apply uniform layers of each ingredient.
Layer 2: spread 3/4 cup of sour cream over the potatoes
Layer 3: shredded ham (I have to give a credit here to my friend Filip who did such a great job cutting up this ham)

Layer 4:
Layer 5: use 1/2 of the shredded cheese
Layer 6: shredded hard boiled eggs- but save 1 egg yolk for the decoration

Layer 7: remaining part of sour cream
Layer 8: the rest of shredded cheese

I made a flower out of an egg yolk and parsley in this one. You can be as creative as you want. If you think of any other good idea, let me know.

I would also like to extend special thanks to my friend Sale who was holding this dish so nicely while i took this photo.

  2. Why is it called mimosa? I always wanted to know.

Zorana, prvi put pravim ovu salatu i veliki je hit :) malo mi je teze da pravim Srpske recepte jer nisu bas detaljni (ove sto sam do sada nasla) ali kad sam vidjela tvoje recepte odusevila sam se. Veoma mi se svidja nacin na koje pises svoje recepte uz slike, i planiram polako da ih sve isprobam.
