Simply yum.

Smoked Salmon Egg Salad, originally uploaded by razzieswirl.

Just a quickie post in ode to this delicious, simple dish.
My smoked salmon egg salad is probably one of my favorite things to make. It's heavenly, ridiculously easy to make, healthy and relatively cheap. I've been exercising daily and really watching what I eat, and I've been trying to eat more high protien/less fatty foods. This dish is right up my alley, it's packed full of protein, pretty darn healthy but also tastes sinfully decadent.

Serve this egg salad on top of a thick slice of your favorite rustic bread (or in my case an extra crispy english muffin) with a little bit of butter lettuce. If I were going to eat this for breakfast on the weekend I'd serve it with a big cup of black tea, or if you're having friends over I'd serve this with a lovely mimosa (with fresh squeezed oj, of course!). This salad is versatile, it can be a simple dinner or snackie, or a fabulous addition to Sunday brunch, you decide!

Recipe: Smoked Salmon Egg Salad


4 medium boiled eggs roughly chopped
1/4 to 1/2 lb roughly chopped high quality smoked salmon (depends on how salmony you want your egg salad to be)
1 TBLS dill
1 TBLS finely chopped shallot
2 TBLS light mayo

(I don't add salt, the salmon generally has enough of it to flavor the salad)


Mix all ingredients in a bowl and you're done!
I like to let it sit for a few hours in the fridge so all the flavors can mingle a while.
