Cook Like a Star - Barefoot Contessa (Smoked Salmon and Egg Salad Tartines)

>>  5/28/2012

I found the recipe at Food Network - Barefoot Contessa  Salmon is a frequent ingredient in our menu here. Smoked salmon and egg salad tartines were really delicious. I didn't modify the recipe. I prepared the tartines following exactly the original recipe of Ina Garten. The only thing I added was a radish batterfly garnish. And yes, I reduced the ingredient's quantity.

8 servings
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon good mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoons whole-grain mustard ( I ground it)
  • 1 tablespoons minced fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 ground black pepper
  • 8 slices French bread 
  • 8 slices good smoked salmon


Boil the eggs. Peel them and chop.
Transfer the chopped eggs to a bowl and add the mayonnaise, mustard, dill, salt, and pepper. Combine lightly with a fork.
Toast or grill the bread. Lay 1 slice of salmon on each piece of bread, spread on the egg salad, then garnish with a sprig of dill. I used a radish garnish.  Serve at room temperature.

The day before I made a vegetable carving arrangement for my class and carving tools presentation. It consists of pumpkin, cucmber, carrot and daikon.

The recipe is linked to Cook like a Star blog hop event organized by Zoe (Bake for Happy Kids).

Selena, I agree with Zoe that these will be great finger foods at any size gathering. Your basket/bouquet is gorgeous. So clever using the pumpkin for the basket and handle.

Keep writing...
