Are you in no mood to cook anything but still want to eat something delicious and nourishing especially after a rigorous workout that has sapped your will to cook? Are you in a mood for a hefty crunchy salad that oomphs it up with a dressing so deliriously flavourful with a kiss of the piquant that is just as easy to carry in your lunchbox and eat while sitting at your work desk?
If you are nodding your head to al these questions then look no further because I have a salad which is just the right mood. High protein, low fat and full of colourful veg that is the fiber you need.
This is my easy boiled potato and egg salad with a spicy dressing which has no step by step pictures because it is really is that easy.
Eggs: 2 hard boiled
Potatoes: 1-2 medium
Vegetables: carrots, capsicums or peppers of choice, onions.
Coriander: 1 small bunch chopped
Lemon juice: 1-2 tsp
Mayonnaise light : 1 tbsp
Grain Mustard: 2 tsp
Yogurt: 2 tbsps
Salt to taste
Pepper: 1/2 tsp
Paprika: 1/2 tspIf you want it spicier add some extra red chilli powder or crushed red peppers.
Cube the boiled potatoes and slice the vegetables either into thin shreds or into bite sized pieces. The vegetables you use are up to you.
Boil the eggs and cube or slice them.
Make the dressing by mixing into a bowl the yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, spices, salt and lemon juice. Mix well with a spoon. The dressing will be thick and deliciously coat all the ingredients of your salad.
In a large bowl tumble in the vegetables and eggs and drizzle over the dressing. Toss the salad to coat evenly.
This salad can be eaten immediately or packed into a lunch box for a delicious healthy meal.
