"Toshkent" salati (salad "Toshkent")

This salad is mainly prepared in Tashkent. It is tasty and crunchy, goes good with soups. Adding spring onions will give great taste to this salad. It is also can be used as a healthy filling for your sandwiches.
200 grams of boiled meat, cut into long strips
3 turnips, peeled and cut into long thin strips
1 small onion, peeled and sliced
1 spring onion
1.5 tbsp of mayonnaise or sour cream
Salt to taste.
Put the meat in cold water and bring to boil. Scoop off the foam and let it simmer for 2.5 hours. Add some salt and a bay leaf. Take out the meat and let it cool down. You can use the stock for other purposes. Now combine the strips of meat with the turnips, onion, spring onion and mayonnaise (or sour cream), add salt to taste and finely mix all together. If your turnips are bitter, soak them in cold, salty water for 15 min before putting them into the salad.
Serve and enjoy!
