Egg Salad


Egg Salad: Carole's Chatter


This egg salad made a lovely change from my more usual salad offerings. 

I boiled 5 eggs so that they would be just hard.  I have posted before about the way I do this – I am sure others have even better ways but this works for me.  

When they are cool enough to handle, chop the eggs up – I try to get both yolk and white into most pieces.  Add ½ a red chilli (finely diced), a chopped spring onion (scallion), a small amount of chopped Italian parsley, 2 slices of red onion finely diced, some gherkin and capers (chopped). 

Non-egg ingredients of egg salad:  Carole's Chatter


Here is a pic showing the non egg ingredients.

The dressing was a mix of lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, mayonnaise and salt and pepper.  I won't try to give any quantities since I think the consistency of a mayo based dressing is a very personal thing.


This salad went down a storm with the better half!

  5. I love egg salad! I like this version with both scallions and red onion. That chili probably added a nice kick.
