“This recipe from *The Best Ever French Cooking Course* cookbook by Carole Clements & Elizabeth Wolf-Cohen is everything you want a recipe to be. In my view that's ingredient & budget-friendly, a make-ahead quick-fix, low-cal & low-fat, a colorful & attractive presentation + amazing versatility. Altho I could only enter it in 2 categories, versatility is its biggest bonus as it works as a cold starter, salad course, side-dish to a meat or seafood entree served w/a starch, light lunch w/creative additions & can also be used to garnish a variety of appy platters or the like. Per the intro, "This simple dish is just the kind of thing you might find in charcuteries all over France." (Time does not include hard-boiling & cooling the eggs) *Enjoy* !”
