A really yummy combination of simple ingredients, and you can ask my husband if you don't believe me! He fancies himself a salad connoisseur and he loved it! I have developed a passion for roasted red onions, and put this salad together last night. It's plain and flavourful. It is an ideal starter when the cook worries that the main meal might be too light, as it contains some filling ingredients. It would be an ideal lunch with bread on the side. Boil the eggs and roast the red onions an hour or half a day ahead -- whenever you have time -- before putting the simple salad together. Cooking time given is for roasting the onions and at the same time boiling the eggs.
