Tarragon's not exactly my favorite herb, but I do enjoy it on occasion in a good salsa verde drizzled over lamb. Tonight, I plan on making the most of leftover eggs, tarragon, and capers from yesterday's Easter celebration and last night's dinner by putting together a hearty smoked salmon and egg salad sandwich in a matter of minutes. For the recipe, keep reading.
Whenever I look in the fridge and realize I have a carton full of eggs that are about to expire, I hard boil them. Hard boiled eggs are an easy snack that can last in the fridge for up to a week. They are also great in salads or sandwiches. After boiling the eggs, I do what my dad does and write the date on the shell. That way I'll know how old the hard boiled eggs are.

On average, I eat about three hard boiled eggs per week. They're easy to transport and make a great snack or quick breakfast. I also enjoy throwing them into salads or sandwiches. Whenever my eggs are about to go bad, I simply boil them and that way, I know they won't go to waste. How about you?

Since PartySugar and I have been infatuated with salads this Summer, I thought it would be appropriate to pay homage to the French national holiday today with a specialty native to the Côte D'Azur region of France.
Salade Nicoise, or Nicoise salad, originated in the town of Nice, and is made with boiled new potatoes, steamed haricots verts (baby green beans), boiled eggs, local olives, cured anchovies, and tomatoes, tossed in a Dijon mustard vinaigrette and topped with tuna. I selected a recipe that uses some classic ingredients, but also incorporates a few unconventional flourishes — like seared tuna and caperberries — for a current twist.
It's extremely important to note that the tuna should be removed from the pan immediately after searing — I left it in the pan after turning off the stove, and latent heat nearly cooked the tuna through. Bring a bite of French countryside to your kitchen when you read more
The company Eggology, known for selling pasteurized egg whites, is now selling packaged hard-boiled eggs — $1 for two eggs. They're cage-free, organic, and pre-cooked and peeled, so if you enjoy eggs for breakfast, in your salad at lunch, or as a pre-workout snack, you don't have to boil or peel their shells off. Not that boiling and peeling an egg is that difficult, but anything that makes it easier to eat healthy seems like a plus. So are you eggcited about these pre-cooked eggs?
