Welcome to my new obsession: hard boiled egg vinaigrette.

This hard boiled egg vinaigrette is a great way to use up leftover hard boiled eggs! It's fabulous on roasted vegetables, salads and toast.

YES it’s a thing. A delicious thing. Please don’t be freaked! I promise that it is out of this world and you will  looooove it. 

perfect hard boiled egg

I know, I know! This might sound weird. I mean, hard boiled egg vinaigrette?

But if you’re a lover of eggs like I am (they are def my favorite food!) and now have a fridge full after Easter, use one or two of them up to try this recipe. It’s SO fantastic.

I was on the fence about dyeing eggs this year because I didn’t know if it seemed… irresponsible? But we had enough eggs and every weekend I hard boil at least eight, so I figured why the heck not. I knew they’d get eaten, if only because I am in love with my best ever egg salad

Seriously, if you need an egg salad recipe, RUN to that one right this minute!

But the only thing is that I make egg salad weekly, so I wanted to have a few OTHER recipes to go with all the hard boiled eggs. I love to throw them in salads (that’s Eddie’s favorite way of consumption) and I also often slice them and put them on either avocado or hummus toast. Heck, I’ll even eat one plain with salt and pepper! 

However this… this recipe is a game changer for me.

For years, I’ve loved the classic asparagus topped with chopped eggs. In fact, any king of egg works for me. You’re not seeing things: I most definitely have a few other asparagus + egg toast combos.

And since I also happen to lose my mind over all things tart, briney and vinegary?

This bowl is basically a combo of all my favorite things. 

The dressing is white wine vinegar, dijon, capers and tons of olive oil. My mouth waters just typing those words!

In the last week I’ve eaten this dressing on an array of roasted vegetables. But I love the idea of making it more of a complete lunch by slathering toast with goat cheese, topping it with a few roasted (or even leftover!) vegetables and THEN drizzling on the dressing.

Um. It might be my lunch for the remainder of 2020.

And the best part – use what you have. Throw some greens (I like microgreens, but spinach or arugula works!) on the toasts. If you don’t have goat cheese, do cream cheese. 

You can also use the hard boiled egg vinaigrette on a salad and you get the both of best worlds: the eggs and the dressing in one!

Oh and you could even throw another slice of bread on top and call this a sandwich. I don’t blame you.
