Chicken and pineapple salad

The chicken and pineapple salad is a festive dish of the late Soviet and post-Soviet period. It is interesting that pineapples in the USSR went on sale mostly sliced and sealed in plastic bags. The chicken and pineapple salad was apparently invented as a way to use chopped fruits. However, it has struck roots and is prepared to this day.

  • walnut - 1/2 cup
