How to Make Turkey and Champignon Salad for Christmas

We decided to post a new recipe of our own here. It comes with boiled turkey meat and homemade pickled champignons.

The recipe also features boiled carrot, Savoy cabbage and our homemade olive mayo. Savoy cabbage is the queen of cabbages. It has crinkled leaves packed into flower-like crumbly head. Savoy cabbage provides twice as much vitamins, minerals and proteins as a head cabbage. And it tastes just great. Savoy cabbage appeals to both kids and seniors. In culinary, it is stewed and comes in salads and soups.

If there is no Savoy cabbage, or Savoy salad, available, get lettuce salad or Lollo Rosso salad with reddish leaves or just any leaf salad.

Our salad is amazingly tasty and it will be great option for Christmas table. Let it stand for 2-3 hours in a cold place for better taste.
