Zesty Salad with Egg

Salad with Egg

Ready in minutes, this salad can be served as a simple and delicious appetizer. A combination of pickled cucumbers and mustard make it a bit spicy. The Russians usually go for salted cucumbers. For someone who is not used to them, salted cucumbers can be a little bit strong in taste. It's best to serve it with fresh hearty black bread with butter.

2 hard boiled eggs
4 pickled cucumbers
3 stalks green (spring) onion
1 bunch fresh herbs
2 tsp mustard
2 tbsp mayonnaise


  1. Hard boil the eggs. Remove the shell and separate egg whites from egg yolks. Finely chop egg whites.
  2. Clean and chop green onions. Slice picked cucumbers thinly.
  3. Blend together mayonnaise and mustard. Combine the dressing with egg whites, chopped onions and cucumber slices.
  4. Before serving crumble egg yolks over the salad and sprinkle with fresh herbs.
