Egg tartare salad

Egg tartare salad

This is about as far removed from ordinary egg mayonnaise as you can get. It’s crunchy, spicy, tangy, sharp and vinegary – all of the things that are missing from the egg mayo you knew and (thought) you loved. Try this and you’ll never play it safe again.


6 medium eggs, hard-boiled and chopped
4 spring onions, chopped
4 gherkins, diced
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2-3 dashes tabasco sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Cook your eggs until they are hard-boiled – this should take around 5-6 minutes. After they have cooked, run them under cold running water until they are cool enough to handle. Remove the shells and roughly chop them before adding to a mixing bowl.

Chop the spring onions, gherkins and fresh dill and add to the egg mixture. Add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and tabasco sauce and use a fork to mix everything together really well. Taste and add salt and freshly ground black pepper. The mixture will keep for a couple of days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container. This is a gorgeous sandwich filler which works particularly well on rye bread.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
