Egg Salad Recipe

Eggs, eggs, eggs! They are one of my favorite breakfast and lunch options to eat. I love experimenting with eggs and different flavors. They are so versatile, you can add an endless variety of spices, and greens and the result is fantastic!

My favorite type of eggs are pasture raised. The secret to good eggs is in the yolk, the more yellow the yolk is, the better. We are blessed to have that option in our grocery store so pasture raised is what we choose. I also love using good quality extra virgin olive oil. It makes such a difference on the final taste when all the flavors comes together. My favorite type of olive oil to use for this salad is Lucini.

Arugula is also a great combination with eggs if you like that peppery after taste arugula presents. Besides being extremely delicious and nutritious, this is a quick and easy go to lunch option with very few ingredients. I hope you try it and please let me know if you do!

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
