Quick and Easy lunch: Egg Salad

A salad can be your very worst enemy or  it can be your best-friend, I'm stuck right in the middle. My mother introduced me to salads when I was about 8 but back then I wasn't really fussed. Unfortunately with age comes fussy and complicated taste buds, now I'm all about creating a great tasting salad whatever the occasion. Today's lunch is made up of protein packed eggs and some leafy greens. These leafy greens are low in calories but rich in fiber which is awfully good for your digestive system.
Most salads can be dull so why not spice it up a bit with a few drops of your favourite sauce and a sprinkle of pepper. That definitely makes a difference, adding a hint of flavour.

What you need:

2 hard boiled eggs
Lettuce
Quarter cucumber, sliced
Red cabbage, chopped
Half a carrot, grated
Tbsp lemon juice
Your favourite sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Place dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Now transfer to plate, add eggs, sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Finish off by drizzling some lemon juice over your salad.
