La Salade Cote Cap Verte ( Chopped Egg Salad)

"The influence of French food in Senegal is unmistakable, yet Senegalese food has a quality of its own, with dishes from many other parts of the world and other parts of Africa incorporated into the cuisine. This Senegalese dish may be used either as an appetizer or as a salad. Posted for ZWT 2006"

  1. DH & I are NY resolved to limit sweet treats & eat lighter. He often eats his main meal at work & I am left to my own devices, so I went in search of a tasty salad & found this among your recipes. The simple ingredients & ease of prep make this salad an excellent choice. While I made the salad for 1, I did make a full recipe of the dressing. I used the olive oil option, halved the vinegar amt (DH prefers a lighter vinegar flavour as opposed to a stronger one), randomly sprinkled dried herbs from my spice rack (not sure which or how much) & esp liked the honey flavour. Like the prior reviewer, I think this dressing will be good on other salads. I enjoyed your salad w/Recipe #191883 by Mainely Debbie. Thx for posting this recipe for us SQ.
  2. Very Very tasty- I will make the dressing for other salads as well. I added a little extra garlic powder, dried parsley, fresh thyme, and just a pinch of basil, the honey added just the right amount of sweetness. I have the rest of the eggs, salad greens, and dressing all boxed up for lunch at work tomorrow.


<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste &amp; appearance; directions were clear &amp; easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;</p>
