Creamy Blue Cheese and Egg Salad

Creamy blue-cheese and egg salad

When eating Zero Carb you may eventually be happy with just one type of meat on your plate, such as a juicy rib-eye steak or a huge pile of bacon (me), but if you are also catering for non-ZC family members or friends who come round for lunch or dinner, then you don’t necessarily have to go out of your way to make them something that you cannot eat.

This is just such a recipe and as long as you can handle dairy OK without it giving you any issues, then this Creamy Blue Cheese and Egg Salad can be used in place of regular egg mayonnaise and also commercially made blue-cheese dressing that both contain non-ZC ingredients.

Creamy blue-cheese and egg salad

This recipe is simplicity itself and you can tweak the amount of ingredients you use to suit your taste and needs. Here is my basic recipe:

6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 tub (300ml) soured cream
1 tub (200g) full-fat cream cheese
150g Danish Blue or Stilton cheese, crumbled

Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl. Chill in the fridge until needed. Serve with your meat and enjoy!

If you want something that more resembles an egg mayonnaise salad, then leave the eggs quite chunky and use less soured cream. You can buy smaller tubs of soured cream (150ml) to use and this will give you a thicker result.

If you would like to use the mix more like a dipping sauce, then put the chopped hard-boiled eggs and crumbled blue cheese into the mixing bowl first and mash with a fork until smooth.

Add the cream cheese to the egg and blue cheese mixture and blend together. Use a larger tub (300ml) of soured cream and gradually add the cream a bit at a time, blending it into the mixture as you go. This will give you a thick yet smoother blue-cheese dipping sauce which is great for serving with chicken goujons (coated with crushed pork scratchings) or for dipping crispy bacon rashes into etc.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
