Ingredients

For dressing

  • 2 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 large lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/3 cup Private Reserve Greek extra virgin olive oil (or Early Harvest Greek extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper

For Egg Salad

  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 Persian cucumbers (or 1/2 seedless English cucumber), diced
  • 2 to 3 green onions, trimmed, and chopped (both white and green parts)
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup packed chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup packed chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 5 large hard boiled eggs, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl or mason jar, mix together the dressing ingredients. Set aside for now.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add all the salad ingredients except the eggs. Give the dressing a quick whisk and pour over the salad. Mix to combine. Add the sliced eggs, and mix gently again. Taste and adjust salt and pepper.  Add a sprinkle more sumac. Set aside a few minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld. (See recipe notes for preparing ahead). Enjoy!

Notes

  • Prepare ahead. You can mix the salad a few hours in advance; cover tightly and refrigerate. For best results, add in the eggs a few minutes or up to an hour before serving.  Salad will keep well for 2 to 3 days in the fridge in a tightly-closed container.
  • Variation. If you prefer, omit the jalapeno peppers. Instead, use mild bell peppers 1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers of any color you like.
  • Recommended for this recipe. Private Reserve Greek extra virgin olive oil (from organically grown and processed Koroneiki olives). And from spice collections, sumac and coriander.
