I know this recipe was submitted by Egg Farmers of Ontario but unfortunately I have to say that while I did enjoy this salad and will happily make it again, it is much better without the eggs for a number of reasons. First, there is no way to avoid the little egg yolk "crumbs" that cling unattractively to the potatoes and beans. Leaving out the eggs would give this a much cleaner, brighter look. Second, I believe this salad is best served at room temperature and I'd feel more comfortable doing that without the eggs. Third, while this may just be a personal thing, the texture of the eggs against the potatoes and green beans was off putting for me. Finally, it needed something "fresh" and green I think, which would not only look pretty but would give it a burst of fresh flavor it really does need - I used chopped green onion, but any fresh herb would do - tarragon and dill come to mind, or even parsley. Still, as this recipe's first reviewer, I happily report this is quite a lovely salad with a nicely seasoned, well-balanced vinaigrette.

I agree about not adding the eggs to the salad but I did surround the salad with quartered boiled eggs and it looked lovely, and it is best at room temp so the surrounding eggs can be addd before serving. I also do think it needed some oniony flavor so added spring green onions and that really made the dish pop. Such a pleasant fresh taste of spring in this one, it's definitely a keeper.


Made it twice now. Easy, quick, and the kids loved it (13 years old) and they are getting picky. Good warm or cold. Next time I will try with frozen beans to see if I like it as much.
