When you hear “Green Salad” you’re probably thinking lettuce, spinach, avocados… Today, I’m introducing Green Onions Salad. I especially love making this salad for my kids. They devour it without picking green onions out. This salad is so fresh, so tasty, and filling. I can easily have it for lunch as is or top my toast with it for a light sandwich. Also, it is perfect for complementing your dinner plate. This green salad is especially good with mashed potatoes. My mom used to make it with less eggs, and sometimes would omit eggs altogether. It’s up to you. Green Onion is a hero in this salad, so feel free to use as many eggs as you’d like or don’t use them at all.
- 2 bunches green onions
- 1 large cucumber
- 6 hard-boiled eggs
- 2-3 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt
- fresh dill, chopped (optional, not pictured)
Chop onions and eggs, slice cucumbers. Add sour cream or yogurt and season with salt to taste. I love to sprinkle my salads with fresh herbs. Fresh dill goes perfect with this green salad. This is optional, but recommended. 😉 There you have it! Quick, easy and absolutely delicious salad!
I couldn’t help myself, so I’m posting this picture of my Lilac tree, which is blooming for the very first time! I can’t stop admiring the beauty and the sweet scent that is all over my yard. When we lived in Ukraine, we had Lilac tree growing right in front of our condo windows. When I was born, my grandma planted it, and by the time I was 14 years old, my Lilac had spread and grown so much that during it’s blooming season we could smell it inside our condo the moment we opened the windows. For me, it’s a nostalgic scent of childhood, I find myself sniffing it every time I walk by. This is one of the reasons I love spring, we get to witness nature awakening, and all those beautiful blooms that turn our gloomy yards into paradise. Speaking of paradise, after few sunny days, I finally paid a visit to my garden. It looked more like a jungle already! So, gardening season has officially began, for me! Our apple trees are blooming, blackcurrant bushes already have berries on them! I’ve spent long hours clearing the garden and getting it ready for planting. So far, I’ve planted nothing, but green onions. 😀
