Winter Egg Salad

Winter Egg Salad

We always have an abundance of farm fresh eggs here from our beloved chickens, so I am always coming up with new variations of egg dishes to keep in spirit with the seasons, and keep it exciting. I know we are a couple of weeks into spring now, but here in NY it still feels a bit like winter. So here you have it.

Ingredient List

Single Serving measurements (multiply as desired)

  • 2 hard boiled eggs

  • 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise (we use Veganaise or homemade mayo which I will share the recipe for in a post soon!)

  • 1 tablespoon of dried cranberries

  • 1 tablespoon shredded carrot

  • 1 green onion, chopped

  • Pinch of salt

  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon

To Do

  • Put eggs in pot of water, bring to a rolling boil, and boil them for 8 minutes. After 8 minutes turn off heat and let sit in hot water for 15 minutes or so. Then drain and soak in cold water to cool.

  • Once eggs are chilled, peel and chop

  • Mix in mayonnaise/Veganaise, salt, and cinnamon

  • Top with shredded carrots, chopped green onion, and cranberries

It’s a simple upgrade on classic egg salad. And it is good. Really good. Those few add-ins really boost the dish.

I enjoy to eat the salad on greens (particularly arugula), on fresh rye bread, or with apple slices.
