Servings 10


  • 6 cornichons chopped
  • cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped drained capers
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • Kosher or sea salt and a lot of freshly ground pepper
  • hard-boiled eggs coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped herbs I use parsley


  1. Combine cornichons, oil, vinegar, capers, and mustard in a small bowl to and whisk together; season with salt (just a tiny bit) and pepper. Gently mix eggs and parsley into dressing with a spoon – not the whisk. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  2. You can make this two days prior to eating too, (though it takes so little time to make I don’t know why you’d need to) refrigerate and just put out a few hours before the meal to let come to room temperature.
