Pasta salad tastes even better with hard-boiled eggs! A little fresh dill and parsley keep it light and fresh. Serve it on a bed of baby spinach or toss in some shredded romaine lettuce for an extra veggie punch.

  1. Place eggs in the bottom of a large pot and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; remove from heat, cover with a lid and let sit, undisturbed for 12 minutes. Drain water and place eggs in a bowl of ice water to cool. Once cool, peel and slice in half.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the mustard, vinegar, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper together. Add the onions, artichoke hearts, dill and parsley and toss to coat. Set aside.

  3. Cook pasta following package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool.

  4. Add pasta to the bowl with the dressing along with half of the eggs and gently stir to combine.

  5. Portion among bowls and garnish with remaining egg halves.

  6. Note: The USDA recommends cooking eggs until the yolk and whites are firm.


  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
