2 T. mustard

salt, pepper, dill, or chives to taste

2 handfuls spinach, arugula, or other greens

4 slices bread


Submerge eggs in a pot of cool water, bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let sit for 10 minutes.

Place eggs in a bowl of water and ice cubes to stop cooking.

Once completely cooled, remove eggshells.

Mash eggs, and add mayo, mustard, and spices.
