Really enjoyed this salad!!! I made this as written, using the malt vinegar and adding a little garlic salt. For the salad, I used, of course, the lettuce but then added some carrots, celery and cucumber along with the chives. I had never added finely grated hard boiled egg yokes, but it did kind of thicken the dressing but also didn't really stand out for flavor. We didn't wasted the other 1/2 egg yolk or whites as DH just ate them before dinner was even ready. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.
This was a big hit with everybody and was delightfully simple.I used a combination of a sweet butter lettuce and some red leaf lettuce, then added some radish and cucumber (as well as diced egg white, since I didn't want it to go to waste). I used the malt vinegar, which I think added all the flavor along with the egg yolk. Not a bit of salad was leftover! Will definitely make this again! Made for ZWT 8.
