Egg and Veggie Salad with Dill Green Goddess Dressing

Look for French breakfast or watermelon radishes to add color and interest to this salad. Don’t be tempted to make the dressing in just one step; only part of the yogurt is puréed with seasonings, then stirred into the remaining yogurt to achieve the right consistency.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
5 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
10 small purple potatoes, halved lengthwise (14 oz.)
Ingredient Line: 
16 medium orange cauliflower florets

Instructions: 

1. Set large vegetable steamer rack in pot over boiling water. Place eggs on rack; surround with potatoes. Cover pan, and steam 10 minutes. Scatter cauliflower over potatoes. Cover, and steam 3 to 4 minutes more, or until vegetables are just tender and eggs are hard-boiled.

2. Meanwhile, cut 1-inch piece from 1 cucumber. Peel, and place piece in blender. Add 1/3 cup dill, 1/4 cup yogurt, oil, and vinegar, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Purée in blender until smooth. Place remaining 1/2 cup yogurt in medium bowl. Stir purée from blender into yogurt until smooth.

3. Slice remaining cucumbers thickly on diagonal.

4. Peel eggs under cold running water. Quarter eggs.

Comments on this Recipe

This looks really good. I'm inspired to hard boil some eggs tomorrow!

Sems like a good dressing to use in many summer salads! Love the simple technique of steaming things together. Steaming seems to work really well on very fresh eggs that otherwise won't peel.

I've fixed this dish twice, and it's been great both times. I serve it over mesclun salad, and tonight I added diced avocado. A winner!
