Tomato Egg Salad with Parsley Pepita Pesto

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

An easy, low-calorie and protein rich recipe that works as a starter or light lunch. It's great to serve the family on a lazy weekend. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make this salad in minutes! A delicious parsley and radish top pesto dressing brings sweet ripe cherry tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs perfectly together. Homemade pesto is for sure fresher and more tasty than store-bought varieties, but if you are short on time, it's perfectly fine to use a good store-bought one.

Parsley Pepita Pesto
  • 4 Eggs
  • 350 g Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 bunch Parsley
  • 1 bunch Radish greens
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 50 g Pepitas
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 50 ml Olive oil
  1. Place eggs in a saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 7 minutes for hard boiled eggs. Drain and refresh under cold running water. Carefully peel and quarter eggs. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Wash and dry the cherry tomatoes. Cut them in half and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Rinse and dry the parsley and radish greens. Roughly chop the herbs and garlic cloves. Place them in a food processor together with pepitas. Pulse a few times to roughly chop the seeds. You don't want it pureed completely. Transfer the mixture into a bowl, season and stir in olive oil. You can also use a mortar and pestle to pound the chopped ingredients into a chunky sauce.
  4. Divide the tomatoes and eggs on two serving plates. Spoon some pesto over. Enjoy!

This looks mouthwatering. I love parsley, but never thought to make pesto out of it. I’m growing it, and have it in abundance, so I’m trying that this week. Thanks for the recipe!

Angie, what delightful dish to make on a hot and humid summer day.

DEZMOND 29/8/21 13:16

Oy, I'm jealous that you still have radishes, we haven't had them since spring here. But sometimes it is nice having veggies periodically as you appreciate them more that way. We also did not have a lot of peaches and nectarines this year due to them hellish heats.

great idea for using tomatoes I could eat this beautiful dish everyday!

Oh this salad looks and sounds terrific - vibrant, satisfying yet not too heavy, and with a great flavour and texture profile. Loving the pesto, too. With a thick slice of rustic bread, that's my ideal lunch or dinner!

Beautiful salad! I love the vine on cherry tomatoes. I can never get them all to ripen at the same time for such a dramatic affect.

mjskit 7/9/21 23:56

With fresh garden tomatoes and parsley, how could I resist not making this! thanks!
