Quick Fix Dinner: Creamy Crunchy Egg Salad

Its a drag to cook on certain days. Yes, even for a foodie like me. Socializing, office, phone calls, more socializing – tends to sap out all energy from a person. And yet, come dinnertime, who wants to compromise?

Not me, no siree. I want something yummy every single day. And a recent spat of requests to post salad-recipes inspired me tonight.

Now when I talk of a salad, the first thing that comes to my mind is – of course – EGGS! Boiled, scrambled, poached, fried: whatever be the way, eggs never fail me. My comfort food, my soul food. And a creamy egg salad is on the top of my list of all-time favorites.

However, what I am posting now is a healthy(ier) version of a creamy egg salad. Crunchy and creamy at the same time, all you need is a slice of toast to complete your meal.

Creamy Crunchy Egg Salad:

Ingredients (serves 2)

  1. 4 small boiled eggs РI like hard boiled,  but even soft boiled is perfect.
  2. 1 large boiled potato, chopped into small cubes
  3. 1 medium cucumber, diced into small cubes
  4. 1 medium onion, chopped finely
  5. Couple of teaspoons of chopped coriander
  6. Juice of half a lime
  7. 1 green chilly chopped finely for heat (optional)
  8. 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or mustard oil, whichever you like
  9. Pepper and salt, to taste


  1. In a large mixing bowl, dump the chopped potato, onion and cucumber. Mix it up.
  2. Crumble the boiled eggs on top of this mixture.
  3. Add the juice of lime, the green chilly, the olive oil/mustard oil and salt and pepper. Mix well. The egg makes this mixture very creamy so you need not add any mayonnaise or other creamy dressings.
  4. Divide the salad into individual serving bowls, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of chopped coriander on top, and serve!
