Easter Green Salad

Easter Weekend

Hello everyone – I hope you’re doing well! Are you getting ready for Easter weekend? Are you excited about short week? Moreover, are you excited about next short week, too?

I assume you all are being busy, so I will not take too much of your time. Besides, I plan on working 2 more recipes this week, so it’s going to be busy.

Indeed, do you feel mini chocolate eggs overload? I do! While I’ve enjoyed Easter candy a lot, we all need some balance. Thus, after posting two sweet ideas – Easy Easter Popcorn and Soft Easter Cookies, it’s time for something savoury and healthier.

Easter Green Salad

This Easter Green Salad perfectly fits the bill! It’s packed with textures and flavours. Juicy, crunchy, salty, chewy. Everything you want in one bowl. Technically, it’s not a true green salad, but that’s details, right? So, what does this scrumptious salad offer you:

  1. Juicy and fresh vegetables such as cucumbers, asparagus, green snap peas, tomatoes, radishes, and iceberg lettuce.
  2. Eggs. You can choose either soft-boiled or hard-boiled eggs.
  3. Prosciutto. Indeed, I used the combination of prosciutto and Capicola.

It’s fresh, bright, and juicy. It only requires some simple yogurt sauce with lemon or mustard. Other additions? Avocado, green olives, or feta would be good!

I hope you like this Easter Green Salad with prosciutto and eggs, and you will give it a try! Certainly, I am not giving up on mini chocolate eggs, so please stay tuned (You can always check my Instagram for any updates.)

Cheers.

    Wow Ben, this is one gorgeous salad! Definitely what I need this weekend to cut the sweetness of all the candy I’ll probably eat. 😆. That egg is perfection, what gorgeous color and texture. And I love the addition of snap peas and asparagus, YUM!

    The Salad King has returned! I really like the flavor combination you’ve got here, Ben! I don’t use hard-boiled eggs nearly enough in recipes, and you’ve got me thinking about other ways to use them. This salad is perfect for spring!
