Coronation Egg Salad

Coronation chicken was invented in 1953 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth. It’s a flavorful salad with a heavy Indian influence. I recently threw a high-tea themed baby shower for a friend whose pregnancy has made her detest chicken, so I decided to give it a go with eggs, and it turned out quite well!

Fit for a queen:

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 5 dried apricots (this comes out to a bit less than 1/4 cup), chopped small
  • 1 1/2-2 tbsp yellow curry powder (start small; you can always add more)
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • 3 tsp maple syrup
  • Small handful of slivered almonds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • a shake or two of black pepper
  • a shake or two of cayenne pepper

In a bowl, combine your spices, mayo, almonds, and maple syrup. Add the eggs and crush them with a fork until everything is well incorporated. Perfect for tea sandwiches with some crispy lettuce, or on toast!
