Cooking instructions and photos

Consider several options for making salads from Peking cabbage and ham.

With croutons

Always add croutons before use, otherwise they will get wet. Ham also goes well with cheese. You can get a ready-made cheese-flavored product from the store. Or make it yourself from a loaf.

How to make croutons yourself:

  1. We cut a loaf of white bread across or take a ready-made sliced ​​one.
  2. We cut each piece of bread into three parts so that long bread stripes are obtained, then we cut small cubes from these strips.
  3. Pour on a baking sheet, sprinkle with olive oil and put in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees, stirring occasionally so that they do not burn.


We need:

  • 1 head of cabbage;
  • 200 grams of ham;
  • 2 eggs, croutons;
  • salt and pepper to taste;
  • dill for decoration;
  • for dressing, you can use low-fat yogurt (what other Peking salads are without mayonnaise?).

Cooking method:

  1. Divide the head of Chinese cabbage into sheets, rinse thoroughly.
  2. Next, chop the cabbage and ham into small strips.
  3. Boil the eggs, separate the white from the yolk and also cut the white into longitudinal parts.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste, mix.
  5. We spread it on plates, making a small indentation in the middle.
  6. Put a spoonful of low-fat yogurt there for dressing, sprinkle the dressing with dill on top.
  7. We spread the croutons all over the "area" of the salad.

Reference! If you are cooking for yourself and do not want to waste extra time serving, then simply stir all the ingredients in a deep plate, separately from the croutons.


We need:

  • 1 head of Chinese cabbage;
  • 150g ham;
  • 1 large tomato;
  • 50g cheese;
  • croutons, if necessary;
  • as well as salt and pepper;
  • Lean mayonnaise can be used as a dressing.


  1. We disassemble the cabbage into bleached leaves and rinse thoroughly, cut it into strips.
  2. Cut the ham into cubes.
  3. We also wash the tomato and cut it into cubes.
  4. Rub the cheese on the finest grater.
  5. Mix the chopped cabbage and our dressing separately.
  6. Put it on a plate.
  7. In a separate bowl, in the meantime, mix the ham and tomato, put on top of the cabbage, salt and pepper.
  8. Put our croutons in the middle, sprinkle with cheese. Salad ready!

Attention! Also, if you do not need a special serving, all the ingredients can be mixed together, and the croutons can be added last. Cheese in this version does not need to be grated on a fine grater.
