How to make it??

Drain the fish and mash it with a fork. Prepare your serving plate or dish. In my serving plate I am using a Springform pan that will give a nice round shape to my salad but this is optional and you can just layering ingredients on a plate in any shape you wish.

Arrange grated potatoes evenly on the bottom of plate and press down with a spoon. Season with pinch of salt and pepper, then on top of potatoes, goes some Mayonnaise.

On top of potatoes, make fish layer then cover this layer with chopped onion and then spread Mayonnaise.

Then arrange grated carrots, season with salt and pepper and spread Mayonnaise. Now, cover top of carrots with egg whites, season with salt and pepper and , spread Mayonnaise.

For last layer, arrange  egg yolks, season with salt and pepper. Garnish with dill leaves or any other fresh green herbs to make it similar to Mimosa flower.

You can keep this salad in the fridge for few days. As i mentioned above, you can use chicken instead of canned fish, or cooked rice instead of potatoes.
