Egg Salad

Egg Salad

Posted 2015-09-22 by Kate Matefollow
Have you ever made egg and lettuce sandwiches and just felt like eating the egg and lettuce without all that bread? I do and now I have created this egg salad. It looks good, tastes good and it's kind of healthy too.

ready to serve


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Makes: serves1-2

Ingredients
3 eggs
2 slices of ham shredded
4 slices of a large tomato
6 slices of cucumber
4 pieces of green oak leaf lettuce washed and dried
2 tablespoons of whole egg mayonnaise
Pinch of salt
Fresh parsley sprig (optional)

Method
  • Take the eggs out of the fridge and bring to room temperature. If the eggs are too cold the shells may crack when cooking.
  • Add eggs to a pan with cold water and bring to the boil slowly on medium heat. Cook for 8 minutes for hard boiled eggs.
  • When eggs are cooked, drain off the water and cover again with cold water to stop the cooking process.
  • Allow to cool before peeling.
  • In a large serving bowl place the lettuce across the bottom of the bowl to cover the base.

  • Cover the base of the bowl with lettuce like this


  • Add the slices of tomatoes in the middle.
  • Add in the cucumber placing in a circle leaving some room in the centre but also making sure not to cover the tomatoes completely.

  • Add tomato and cucumber to the serving bowl


  • When eggs have been peeled add them to a bowl and mash them with a fork or potato masher until all the egg pieces are small.

  • Mashed egg will look like this


  • Add the mayonnaise and the salt to the eggs and mix well to combine.
  • Tear the ham into small pieces and add to the egg mixture.
  • Stir through the ham and then gently spoon the egg mixture into the centre of the serving bowl.
  • Garnish with some fresh parsley.
  • Serve as is for a main meal for one or serve as a side for two along side any main meal. I like to serve this with my vegetable macaroni.
