Potato Egg and Cheddar Salad

My Favourite Salads

Potato Egg and Cheddar Salad myfavouritepastime.com_3111I can’t remember the last time I boiled an egg or had an egg salad. I use eggs a lot, for baking and making pancakes. I rarely have eggs for breakfast. I can’t remember the last time I scrambled an egg. I decided to have an egg salad last week, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. My son doesn’t eat eggs for whatever reasons. They don’t make him sick or anything. It’s just one of those things. So he carefully removed the eggs from his plate and ate the rest of the salad..

Potato Egg and Cheddar Salad myfavouritepastime.com_2409This salad is simple. You can use any green salad like romaine lettuce, or the classic iceberg lettuce or arugula (rocket) or even baby spinach. I used ranch dressing. It’s one of the bottled dressings I always buy. If you have a better alternative that pleases your palate, please feel free to use it. Our summer is very mild and exciting. Lots of fresh air, cool breezes, soft sunshine, and rain. I hope your week has started well. I wish you a fantastic one.

Boil eggs to your desired doneness, cool in cold water, shell and quarter. Place potatoes in cold salted water and boil until fork tender. Drain under cold water, and dice after cooled.

  1. This looks great! I love putting hard boiled eggs into a salad, such an easy and inexpensive source of protein. My middle son recently discovered that he loves hard boiled eggs, unfortunately he is messy when he ears them!

    1. My son doesn’t eat eggs for no reason. He usually picks them and puts them aside. They don’t really make him sick or anything. I used to be messy with eggs to when I was young ,too. The yolk would be all over the place. Thanks for visiting and best wishes!

  2. Funny thing…I had boiled 6 eggs yesterday morning, checked email and there you were with my supper. I have to say it was very delicious and refreshing in our heat! I loved all the vegetables with the hard boiled egg and potato! I’ve never thought to do it this way! Thanks Liz for all of your creative recipes. We are having such amazing beautiful and sunny days and it looks like the weatherman is giving us sunshine through the week. I love love love it!!!

    1. Hi Sandy,
      Sorry for the delay. I’m spending Sunday afternoon clearing the backlog of messages. Times are so busy. If only there were 30 hours in a 24 hour day. That would be awesome and tiring too! LOL. I am glad you found the salad delicious and refreshing. My daughter loved it, totally. She was all smiles (she rarely loves salads!). And potato makes it filling too. We have a balanced weather here. less heat more moderate weather and rain. Have a wonderful time. In you I’ve found a reliable and gracious friend. I appreciate you, always, Sandy. Best wishes to your family.

  3. Looks delicious, Liz! I love the combination of ingredients. I never would have thought of adding the cooked potatoes, but it is such a great idea! Your summer weather sounds perfect. Glad you are enjoying it.

    1. HI Shari,
      I wanted to eat it for lunch, so I needed something more filling in it. I absolutely love it. Thanks and have a great week!
