Spring Lettuce and Egg Salad

Spring Lettuce and Egg Salad

Sharing is caring!

This Spring Lettuce and Egg Salad is easy to make with leftover Easter Eggs.

Christos Anesti my friends!

We returned back from our short break to Sparta last night.

We didn’t have much time to relax and although it rained a bit we still roasted our lamb on the spit in the garage.

Since early in the morning I’ve been in the kitchen preparing for today as it’s my son’s name day so we are still celebrating St. George’s Day and tomorrow is the birthday of my other son Kyriakos.

I said Christos Anesti (Meaning Christ is risen) and is what we say after Easter to announce this happy event to our friends.

A confirmation to this statement is “Alithos Anesti” meaning “Indeed he is risen”.

I found a lot of comments on previous posts and thank you all very much for leaving your comments.

Romaine or Cos Lettuce image

This salad is based on one we used to make on Easter day in Cyprus. That salad was made with lettuce, spring onions, dill and eggs.

I have enriched it with more vegetables and herbs, which makes it delicious and also very healthy.

Salad dressing

The salad dressing is based on ladolemono dressing, in which I have added some mustard, which pairs well with the eggs.

More Leftovers Easter eggs?

Why not make some Deviled eggs as well!

I am submitting this salad to Susan of Food Blogga, who is hosting the event Beautiful Bones, an osteoporosis event.  May is National Osteoporosis Awareness month and Susan has requested us to prepare a calcium rich recipe.

Vegetables are a good source of calcium but it is better absorbed together with Vitamin D, which can be found in the egg yolks.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation, have updated their recommendations for the intake of both Calcium and Vitamin D the last updating being in 1997.

Susan, although a young woman, is suffering from osteoporosis and decided to host a food blogging event to alert women to the potential risks of osteoporosis and encourage them to take steps to protect their bones at every age so please read her post for more details.

Thanks everybody for commenting.]

Cynthia, although I keep saying to myself I will post once or twice a week, I keep posting. However, seriously I will have to cut down as it is becoming very stressful.
