This was really delicious. I liked that there were neither onions nor garlic in this salad, and the dressing mixed with the sieved eggs ( I used a potato ricer on them) was almost like a mayonnaise in looks and consistency, with the mustard and capers giving a really new flavor to the salad that we greatly enjoyed. Will certainly be making this again.
