Yumurta Piyazi - Gaziantep/ Turkish-Style Egg Salad

READY IN: 14mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

Spruced up from turkishcookbook.com. I hardboil eggs the same manner as the woman who posted this recipe on her site: "I love eggs cooked 'between soft boiled and hard boiled' so I only leave the eggs in the hot water for 4 minutes." I couldn't determine by looking at the photo posted on her site if she used Italian/flat leaf parsley or curly parsley for that reason I'll let you choose. If using sumac, omit the salt. A few Turkish olives garnished over the salad doesn't sound like a bad idea either.

I made this yesterday with sumac, flat leaf parsley, and truly enjoyed it. I cooked the eggs early and the salad took almost no time to put together for lunch. Fresh, healthy and great tasting.
