Elegant and easy ladies' luncheon egg and potato salad with accents of tarragon and walnuts. Serve on arugula or romaine (aka Cos).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, over high heat, bring potatoes and enough water to cover to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 15-20 minutes. Drain potatoes, let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large saucepan, gently place eggs and fill with water to 1-inch above the eggs. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and cover tightly for 15 minutes. Transfer eggs with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice and cold water and let stand 5 minutes to cool. Peel eggs and coarsely chop.
  3. Combine eggs and remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, until well combined. Chill, covered tightly, until serving.
  4. To serve, rinse lettuce of choice and spin dry or dry between paper towels. Arrange one leaf of romaine (Cos) on each salad plate (or divide arugula among the plates), then top with a scoop of the egg and potato salad. Sprinkle some chopped walnuts on top.

This was very tasty, however the color didn't make it very appealing and the dressing was a little runny. Next time I would strain the yogurt using papertowels in the bottom of a collander and allowing it to drain for a couple of hours to thicken. But had a good overall flavor. I would also increase the amount of tarragon.

This was a simple potato salad . We didn't find the tarragon flavour strong enough. I did like the addition of walnuts
