A world-renowned "Gyros" salad (a 15-minute recipe)

We all know "Caesar", now it's time to introduce you to "Gyros" lol. One of the most famous Polish salad recipes of all time, a nice chicken and veg combination. There is no extraordinary story behind how I was introduced to this recipe. The salad was simply made by my lovely sister, Domi, who wanted to treat us with something fresh, healthy and hearty at the same time. Ever since then this recipe has been a hit in our house for years and it still steals my friends' hearts away each time they attend our dinners or parties.  I guarantee it will be loved by everyone regardless their personal taste and acquaitance with Polish cuisine. 


1 can sweet corn
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 large chicken breast, diced
4-5 gherkins, finely chopped
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
Gyros seasoning (available in all Polish supermarkets for about £0.49)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Preparation steps:

Place chicken breast in a frying pan and sprinkle it evenly with gyros seasoning. Fry it. In a medium bowl place fried chicken pieces and cover with ketchup. This would be a very first layer of your salad. The order of ingredients makes the difference in taste so make sure you put layers as follows:

*chicken breast
*sweet corn

All ready to eat! Healthy and easy to make. Great for any occasion. My favourite serving suggestion?? Accompanied by a fair portion of French fries :)
