Method

  1. Cook the eggs in a pan of boiling water for exactly 8 mins. Lift from the pan, cool under the cold tap, then peel and halve.
  2. Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, capers and spring onions. Toss together most of the dressing with the leaves. Place on a serving dish, top with the halved eggs and drizzle over the remaining dressing. Serve on its own or with slices of ham.

This was incredibly easy and quick to make, ideal for a busy day at work as its simple to prepare.
I have never had capers before and was put off because they do not appear to be appetising however they were really nice and added a nice pickled flavour to the dish. I shall be making this again, but maybe experiment a little :-)

This looks a nice easy mid week salad. Will probably use chopped chives instead of spring onions, as I'm not keen on them.
