Sunflower Salad

The bright and festive «Sunflower» salad, the recipe for which I will tell you today, consists of a simple set of ingredients and is laid out in layers. The unusual design in the form of a sunflower makes the dish a real table decoration. The salad is tasty, hearty and very juicy. Marinated onions give the salad a pleasant sour-sweet note, making the taste of the dish piquant and completed. To save cooking time, potatoes and eggs can be boiled in advance and stored in a fridge. I decorated the salad with a ladybug, which I made from half a cherry tomato and olive.
