A delicious snack for every day

11 posts in this topic

Dear all,

as I have prepared some egg salad about 10 minutes ago, I thought it could be a good idea to share this special recipe with you. We talk about a very special kind of this salad - this of my grandma and my mother from Dresden (Saxony).

Dresden (Saxonian) Egg Salad

What you need:

14 eggs

2 big onions

1 bunch of chive

3 tablespoons of medium hot mustard

about 400 g of mayonnaise

a pinch of black pepper

salt (as you like it)

1 tablespoon of sugar

Steps:

1. Eggs into a pot with cold (!) water. Bring them to the boil and let them simmer for at least 10 minutes. It is important to have hard-boiled eggs.

2. Meanwhile you cut up the onions and the chive into small pieces and put them into a bowl.

3. When the eggs are ready, you have to refill the pot with cold water. 2 times to ensure that the water is cool. Wait about 15 minutes, take the eggs and remove the shell.

4. Take the egg slicer and cut the eggs vertically and horizontally. We need small cubes no slices.

5. Put the mustard and the mayonnaise on the cutted eggs in the bowl, also the pepper, salt and sugar.

6. Mix all the ingredients.

That´s it. If you followed the instruction as listed your result should look like this:

Enjoy your meal.

:D Verena

PS: by the way ... if you plan a party you can prepare a highlight with the above described salad.

Take as much small-sized tomatoes as you need, remove a small part of the head and scoop out them. Refill it with the salad, put them on a dinner tray and look what happens. You will be suprised which part of your menue is missing first. B)

Sounds very good. I guess the yolks can be used with the rest of the ingredients, and fill the whites (devil eggs). Yummm, thanks!

Anything with almost a pound of mayonaise has to be good!

Sounds like something I might try. Thanks

Verena, your recipe came at a great time. :) I love Devil Eggs and it's one of my signature dishes to take to a "Pot Luck" invite. A few friends gathered here for a picnic yesterday, Presidents' Day 20th Feb. I decided to make the salad you posted here, instead of my signature Devil Eggs. It was a GREAT HIT, AND ALL WANTED THE RECIPE!!! I presented same with WASA crispbread and other goodies.

Thank you so very much. The salad was soooooooooooo good! :):):):):)

Karolyn, that is so great - thank you. :) I am totally happy to know that I´ve done you a favor.

Well, next weekend I have another surprise: I intend to present Grandma´s cheesecake. I bet nobody here knows that kind of cake like we do. ;)

Feel huged -

Verena :)
