Ingredients

4 eggs size large
1 potatoes, peeled and halved 200 g
1 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks 100 g
1 cup green/snap beans, trimmed 100 g
2/3 cup frozen peas 80 g
1/4 cup mayonnaise 65 mL
1/2 cup yogurt, plain, 2% 130 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Boil the egg(s), cool them down immediately in cold water, then cut into quarters. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: peel the potatoes and cut them in half; peel the carrots and cut them into large chunks; trim the ends of the green beans. Place the vegetables in a steamer basket or in a pot of salted water to either boil or steam for about 15 min, depending on the vegetable type. Cook the peas 3-4 min separately. Let cool down the vegetables, then cut them into 1 cm dices and put them in a salad bowl. Add the boiled eggs.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the yogurt then pour over the salad. Adjust the seasoning and toss. Serve.
