The method of preparation of light crab salad in tartlets
Chilled crab sticks cut into small cubes. Tip: if the package is only from the freezer, put it for cooking crab salad for several minutes in a container with warm water - the crab sticks will quickly thaw.
Boil hard-boiled chicken eggs, cool, cut into small cubes or three on a coarse grater, add to a salad bowl.
We add hard cream cheese grated on a fine cheese grater, for this recipe for crab salad it is better to choose fat, with it the salad is more tender.
Thinly chop the leaves of Beijing cabbage, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, slightly knead with your hands to make it softer, and add to the salad bowl. Beijing cabbage can be replaced with any crispy salad, for example, Iceberg salad is suitable.
Sweet fleshy peppers clear of seeds, cut into small cubes. In a pan, heat the vegetable oil, quickly fry the chopped pepper over medium heat (literally 2-3 minutes, no more!).
Cool the pepper a little, add to the rest of the ingredients.
Finely chop the parsley or any other, to your liking. For example, cilantro, basil, dill or green onion, or you can all together in a reasonable amount.

Freshly ground black pepper, mix thoroughly, taste, salt to taste.

Immediately serve. I advise you to fill the tartlets with salad right before putting them on the table, since the dough of tartlets can soak. Enjoy your meal!
