Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • juice ½ lemon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 heaped tbsp capers
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 head Lollo Rosso lettuce
  • 1 Baby Gem lettuce

Tip

Use up the Lollo Rosso: Asian chicken wraps
Rub 1 tbsp oil into 1 thinly sliced chicken breast, 1 deseeded and sliced pepper and 3 halved spring onions. Griddle for 3-5 mins until cooked through. Place a couple of pieces of chicken, pepper and onion onto 6 Lollo Rosso leaves. Roll up and serve with a dipping sauce made from 2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce and lime juice.

Method

  1. Cook the eggs in a pan of boiling water for exactly 8 mins. Lift from the pan, cool under the cold tap, then peel and halve.

  2. Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, capers and spring onions. Toss together most of the dressing with the leaves. Place on a serving dish, top with the halved eggs and drizzle over the remaining dressing. Serve on its own or with slices of ham.
