Sriracha-Herb Egg Salad

May 25, 2012

Here we go with another one of my easy, throw it together lunches; focused on greens and eggs. Today, I made egg salad with a few different fresh herbs, Sriracha for spice, lime juice for tang and a dollop of mayo to hold it all together. For crunch, I diced up seedless cucumber, scallion and jalapeno. With a sprinkle of salt and pepper, you’ve got yourself a unique and delicious egg salad. Enjoy over greens, spread on crackers or on a piece of whole-grain toast. You can absolutely play around with herbs; I used what I had in my fridge, but a bit of cilantro would have perfected this recipe.

Sriracha-Herb Egg Salad Recipe

Serves 1 (hungry girl) to 2

Ingredients:

1 TBS mayonnaise (I like Hellmann’s best)

1 TBS Sriracha sauce

Juice of 1 lime

4 eggs, hardboiled and pealed

*If you can find pastured eggs, buy them. The yolks are bright orange, because of the high levels of Omega 3

1 TBS basil, chopped

1 TBS dill, chopped

1 TBS mint, chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

1 small seedless cucumber, chopped

Procedure:

Add first three ingredients to a medium sized bowl and stir to combine

Add eggs and mash with a fork

Fold in herbs, jalapeno and cucumber

Spoon over greens, drizzle a bit of olive oil, more Sriracha and squeeze out whatever juice is left from the previously used lime
