Broccoli & Boiled Egg Salad

Jump to recipe

Everyone knows I adore Jamie Oliver! It’s on his site that I came across this broccoli salad recipe and it looked perfect for a healthy festive meal, plus my whole family loves eggs. You can find the original here.

The thing is, is looked great on paper, but didn’t actually turn out that well. To me, the mustard dressing just didn’t go with the anchovies and he also added a LOT of anchovies. It’s probably all about your particular taste and hey, that’s what cooking is all about – playing around with the flavours that YOU enjoy. I would rather substitute the mustard dressing for a light aioli, maybe even more of a sweet, light mustard. Something that doesn’t compete with the anchovy.

That said, I still think the broccoli, egg and chili is delicious, the croutons add the crunch and it is very appealing to the eye. If you don’t like anchovy, bacon would be a great replacement. Either way, I would love to know what you think of this one!
