Ingredients for the first recipe
Here's an egg salad recipe that many people seem to enjoy. Prepare the hard-boiled eggs in advance unless you prefer to eat them hot.
Method for the first recipe
Using bagged greens for the base of salads is a bit more expensive, but much more convenient, than chopping your own.
Many people find that if they buy the bags, they eat a healthy salad more often. Use whatever mixture of salad greens you like.
The most nutritious greens are spinach.
We recommend eating 1 cup raw (or 1/2 cup steamed) daily. Baby leaf spinach is healthy and delicious uncooked in salads.
It's better to make your own vinaigrette dressing, but, if you do use a commercial one, please use one that has no added sweetener and is gluten-free like the one recommended in the section above.
As with all recipes, organic ingredients are a healthy choice. Use them whenever you can get them.
Ingredients for the second of the egg salad recipes
Use organic ingredients as far as possible.
Method for the second recipe
In a small bowl, combine the dressing of mayonnaise and the Dijon mustard.
In a larger bowl, toss the celery, bell pepper, spring onions, and the dressing. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper according to taste. Check for seasoning and add more if required.
Serve the mixture on a bed of crisp shredded lettuce, watercress, and cilantro (coriander), with the chopped eggs scattered over the top.
Organic ingredients are a healthy choice; use organic ingredients whenever you can get them.
Eggs from free-range chickens or from chickens that have been fed enriched omega-3 feed can be a wonderful source of proteins and fats.
