Poached Egg Salad Recipe

Recently we sat down with Rachel of Rach, Esquire who shared with us how to make the most perfect salad, poached egg & all. There’s not much Rachel can’t do: she’s an attorney, master photographer, incredible chef, & social media consultant.

Like most salads, this one is super easy to make. Don’t be intimidated by the poached egg, Rachel taught us a fairly simple way to poach an egg. We practiced on our own a few times & by the third egg we got it down pat. Simply fill a shallow pan (we used this one) with water & 1 cap full of white vinegar. Over medium-high heat bring water mixture to simmer. Just before the water begins to boil (don’t let it boil completely) start stirring in a circular motion with a whisk. Quickly crack the egg into the swirl & continue stirring around the egg (make sure not to touch it) until the egg whites wrap around the yolk. Voila! You’ve made a poached egg! Check out the entire recipe below & blow everyone away with this healthy, restaurant worthy salad thanks to Rachel!
