Initially, prepare all the layers. Carrots need to cook. And then clean and RUB on a coarse grater.

Nuts to clean and cut. They can be mixed with carrots or prunes, which needs to be cut.

Mushrooms (fresh mushrooms usually) peel and cut into medium pieces. The onion is to peel and finely chop. Put the onion into a heated pan in vegetable oil. Fry until Golden brown, then put them in mushrooms. Sauté until tender (10-15 minutes).

Fresh cucumber cut into strips. Add the chopped salad. Do this part last, so the greens are not wilted. Is usually made after other layers are already frozen.
