Cooking Pink Flamingo Salad:

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

Bring to a boil over high heat a pot of water, salt it a little. Pour shrimp into already boiling water, add bay leaf, seasonings and allspice, reduce fire. Cook until fully cooked (2 minutes), then drain shrimp and let them cool slightly. After that, gently peel them and if the shrimp are too large, then grind them into small cubes. Sprinkle lemon juice on top. Wash the potatoes and eggs, then boil until cooked and cool. After that, peel and shell them and grate them or grind them into small cubes. Put all the ingredients in a separate bowl. Rinse the tomato under water, cut in half, remove seeds and excess fluid. Cut into small cubes. Cheese, hard grade grate.

Step 2: Prepare the sauce.

To prepare the sauce, mix mayonnaise with ketchup in a separate bowl, add the garlic, previously passed through the garlic press, cream and cream cheese. Carefully transfer all ingredients until smooth. Then place the shrimp in the finished sauce, mix again. It is best if the prawns are aged in the sauce overnight, but if there is not much time, then let them brew for at least an hour.

Step 3: Spread lettuce layers.

Put the first layer, which consists of 1/3 of the shrimp in the sauce, into a transparent deep dish. In this case, try to lay the lowest layer without liquid. Smooth the layer with a tablespoon and spread the chopped potatoes on top. Spread the chopped tomato with the next layer, also level it with a spoon. Between layers there is no need to smear! This is followed by a layer of grated cheese. Lay eggs on top of the cheese. The final layer will be the remaining shrimp in the sauce. It is this sauce that subsequently soaks all the lower layers of the salad.

Step 4: Serve the Pink Flamingo Salad.

The salad should be soaked well, at least 3-4 hours, so it is better to put it in the refrigerator for this period. Serving such a charming and juicy salad on the festive table is generally a win-win option. Although if you decide to please your household with such a dish at the everyday table, you will certainly win no less compliments. Good appetite!
