Summer is just around the corner, and nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer’s day than a fresh, tasty salad. Salads are quick to prepare, so you can spend more time enjoying the sun, and they make a light and healthy alternative to heavy main meals. Combining eggs with your salad adds extra protein, and can even help to absorb the nutrients from the vegetables. We’ve put together a quick list of some of our favourite egg salads for you to try this summer.
