30 minutes in the kitchen: salad in a cheese basket

Salad Cheese Baskets

If you have a cheese basket, any salad will look spectacular, and even more so from seafood. The filling can be changed at your own discretion. Almost all products are combined with cheese: from meat, fish to greens, mushrooms.


  • cheese – 200 g;
  • squid – 200 g;
  • shrimp – 200 g;
  • red fish – 100 g;
  • wheat crackers – 50 g;
  • eggs – 2 pcs.;
  • tomatoes – 1 pc.;
  • mayonnaise – 3 tbsp. l.

Cooking method:

  1. Grate the cheese. Choose firmer varieties like parmesan. A mixture of hard and semi-hard cheeses is also suitable. Experienced housewives note: the result depends on its quality.
  2. Place parchment on a baking sheet. Top is cheese. Give it shape. For example, it can be round. Send to bake in the oven for 10 minutes or use a non-stick pan.
  3. Prepare a bowl. Remove the finished soft cheese cake from the baking sheet and place on it. The bowl must be upside down. Press down on the cake with your hands and let it cool. If the layer of cheese is thin and might break when it dries, cover the top with a damp cloth. When the basket has cooled down, it can be removed.
  4. Prepare a salad. Boil the shrimp in salted water for about three minutes, cool and peel.
  5. It should take no more than two minutes to cook squid. When they have cooled, cut into cubes.
  6. Cut the fish into small pieces. It can be either baked or slightly salted or smoked.
  7. Chop eggs and tomatoes. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and season with mayonnaise. Add croutons. Fill baskets with salad.
