Rustic Egg Salad | www.diethood.com | Simple egg salad served atop crusty bread with tomatoes, soft cheese, and green onions | #recipe #easter #eggsalad #eggs #appetizer

Today, for many of you, it is Good Friday, and I would like to wish those celebrating a Happy Good Friday, a day to remember Our Savior who died on the cross for us.

As some of you may remember, since I have discussed it many times before, I am Macedonian Orthodox, and we celebrate Easter just a few weeks after most of the world. This year Easter, for us, falls on May 5th. Thus, Lenten season has just begun for us and I’m already starving! Just kidding… A diet of raw veggies and rice cakes is awesome!! 😉

Thinking about Easter and what I could share with you, I thought about this Rustic Egg Salad that my Grandma used to make for us on Easter Day to use up some of the colored, hard boiled eggs.

This is a very simple salad, a villager’s salad, as she called it, because it requires only a few very simple ingredients; crunchy, toasted bread, hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, green onions, some soft cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil. Simple, yet incredibly delicious and comforting.

I should mention that in place of the tomatoes, she would use dried red peppers because fresh, homegrown tomatoes weren’t available until much, much later. However, I really, really like it with big, juicy cherry tomatoes.

Also, because I am a sucker for infused olive oil, I dressed it with Basil Parmesan Dipping Oil. MMMM! The wonderful people from Pastamore sent me a bottle, and I could not have been happier. It is so, so good! If interested, you can find them on Twitter, say hello, and tell them I sent you. 🙂

  1. Kate,
    How delicious! I’m with your Grandma, I don’t eat fresh tomatoes this time of year, though I don’t have any dried peppers to sub in. This salad seems perfect for CSA pick up nights, when I’m busy sorting and processing veggies, and sometimes I’ve got to use up eggs to return the carton to the farmers.
    Thanks!

  2. This is such a beautiful salad. I love the colors and the textures. Your photos are so beautiful. I’m going to make this with all of those hard boiled eggs I’ve got! 🙂

  3. Egads, I always loved egg salad, so the idea of doing it with big old planks of bread sounds like heaven. I’d probably take your Grandma’s peppers instead of tomatoes route though, love me some peppers!

  4. Well the good thing about celebrating Easter a couple weeks after the rest of us is that you get a lot of great ideas from everyone right now! Love this egg salad.
