I love reading new paleo recipes, but there’s nothing like going back to the basics. Someone asked me if egg salad was paleo. After all, mayo is just egg yolks and oil, right? Yes, and no. If you hand make your mayo using olive oil, yes. If you buy mayo in a jar made with soybean oil, no. I spent the next few hours pondering the making of paleo egg salad and came up with this: there’s no salad in egg salad. I know caveman didn’t make this on purpose. It would have taken hours. What’s the point when you’re hungry and looking for your next meal. So here’s my “egg salad”: arugula, and an egg. Looks beautiful, doesn’t it? I couldn’t wait to eat it. I gobbled it down in a few minutes. Lemon and arugula was a perfect balance to the egg yolk and avocado. The strawberries were a great finish. I rarely have a whole egg. When I do, I use cage free, organic, omega 3 enriched eggs.
