Plain Egg Dressing


  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or any of your preferred salad oil)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly mixed mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of cream or fresh milk
  • 1 teaspoon superfine (castor) sugar

Take the yolks of two hard-boiled eggs; mash them very carefully until they look like a fine powder entirely free from lumps. Gradually add a tablespoon (or a little extra, according to taste) of the salad oil, and stir it well until the mixture is the consistence of a smooth paste.

Stir mustard into the egg mixture. After this is well mixed, gradually add white and tarragon vinegar and a little salt and pepper.

When these are all well mixed, gradually add a cup of sweet cream or fresh milk and a teaspoon of sugar.

Add the remaining egg whites into either salad, or as decoration.
