Recipe Tips:

- - It is better to cook eggs in a small pan so that they do not beat against each other, and against the walls of the pan during cooking.

- - You can add green olives or black olives to this salad. Black olives are most often called olives.

- - It is not necessary to buy crackers, as you can cook them yourself. Take white or black bread, which you like best. On a cutting board with a knife, cut the selected bread into cubes about 1 - 1.5 centimeters in size. Preheat the oven to 150 - 170 degrees, grease the baking sheet with a small amount of oil. Then sprinkle the sliced ​​bread on the baking sheet and add salt, if desired, you can add various spices. And we dry them in the oven for about 10 minutes, then you can mix them with a kitchen spatula and taste. If it seems to you that they have not completely dried up, then we remove them back into the oven, and the temperature can be turned off, while the oven cools down, they will dry out themselves.

- - It is not necessary to adhere to this form of slicing. You can chop the ingredients as you wish.

- - Instead of lettuce, you can use spinach.

- - Add crackers to the salad immediately before serving, so that they do not have time to soften.

- - Salad can be seasoned not only with olive oil, but also with various other sauces that are suitable for fish.
