Mimosa Salad is a layered salad which can be found on our table during celebrations and occasions like Easter or Christmas. Mimosa salad got its name because it resembles yellow spring mimosa flowers.
The mimosa flower effect is achieved by crumbling boiled egg yolk on the surface of the layered salad. There are many varieties of the mimosa salad – in my recipe, I use canned tuna in oil but you could also use canned salmon if you prefer. I combine the fish with potato, carrot, hard boiled eggs, onion and mayo to make a creamy, delicious layered salad. Everything is finely grated in this salad which makes it really smooth. The wow factor comes from the layering.
To make Mimosa Salad, you will need the following ingredients:
