Updated Egg Salad

I love this new version of  egg salad that Heidi posted on her blog 101 Cookbooks, which if you don’t already rely on it for great recipes, now you know!  This is a nice, light update on a familiar classic, perfect for a new light filled season.

Here’s her recipe, I didn’t want to change a thing, except maybe adding a few dashes of Fire Cider!

hard-boiled-egg-1

Ingredients:

6 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 small head of radicchio, shredded
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1 medium shallot, chopped
3 baby radishes, shaved thin

to serve: little dollop of salted creme fraiche and/or a drizzle of olive oil and Fire Cider

Method:

“Place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by a 1/2-inch or so. Bring to a gentle boil. Now turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for ten minutes. Have a big bowl of ice water ready and when the eggs are done cooking place them in the ice bath for three minutes or so – long enough to stop the cooking.

Crack and peel each egg, then use the big holes on a standard box grater to grate the eggs. Place in a bowl and use your fingers to gently toss the eggs with the salt and pepper.

At this point you can add whatever you like to the salad –  shredded radicchio, fresh dill, shallots, and shaved baby radishes.

Serve topped with tiny dollops of something creamy – like creme fraich or plain yogurt, and a drizzle of olive oil and Fire Cider.  Just a bit of each so you don’t weigh it down.”

Serves 2-4.

Prep time: 5 min – Cook time: 10 min

Serve this salad on top of homemade flax crackers or store bought flax crackers!

Kickin’ Dippin’ Sauce

This recipe is short and spicy sweet!  This is from a Fire Cider fan I met at the Big E, and it’s my favorite kind of recipe: there’s lots of room to make it your own and it’s super quick to whip up.  Fresh dill is generally available year round and if you like it, consider growing your own on a sunny window sill!

Cucumber Salad

This recipe is a  Huebner family favorite.

  • A splash of olive oil
  • optional: chopped fresh dill
Cool and refreshing!

Cool and refreshing!

Procedure:

1. Peel and thinly slice as many cucumbers as you want to eat.  This salad gets better with time so make enough to have for lunch tomorrow.  Put the slices in a large bowl, add salt and toss. Let stand for at least a ½ hour then drain/squeeze out excess moisture – this concentrates the flavor!

2. Thinly slice enough white onion so that you have about 3 times as many cucumber slices as you do onion.  Mix the onion in with the cucumber.

3. Add a splash of organic, extra virgin olive oil.  Liberally add some Fire Cider and mix well.  Taste and adjust salt and Fire Cider.

4. Top with as much cracked black pepper as you like, the more the better.  Add some dill if using and mix again.

5.  Let sit for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Enjoy now or the next day and stay cool, healthy and hydrated!
