This is such a fun and delicious lunch. One of my favorites any time of the year. Egg salad is super easy to prepare. Make sure you have a candle going while peeling the eggs to get help get rid of the sulfur smell in your kitchen after peeling the eggs.
EGG SALAD FOR TWO
- 4 hard-boiled eggs
- 1/4 cup sliced pimento filled green olives
- 1/2 cup gluten-free mayo (more or less depending on your preference)
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- Romaine lettuce leaves
Chop hard-boiled eggs in a bowl. Add olives and mayo and mix well. Place romaine lettuce leaves on a plate and add a scoop of egg salad.
CAPRESE SALAD FOR TWO
- 1 fresh mozzarella cheese log,
- Ripe tomato
- Fresh basil leaves
- Caramelized garlic olive oil
- Pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper
Alternate two or three slices of mozzarella and tomato along with fresh basil leaves on an angle on a plate. Drizzle with caramelized garlic olive oil and top with the desired amount of salt and pepper.
Waa-laa…..a fun and nutritious gluten-free lunch or a light dinner in the summertime. Use freshly picked summer tomatoes from your garden or pick some up at a local farmer’s market. It’s a win-win!!
