Brooklyn Grange Salad with Pickled Eggs and Idiazabal

By Seamus Mullen From Moveable Feast Season 2, Ep.8
Scott Phillips

Servings: 6

Chef Mullen’s salad calls for preserved lemons, an essential ingredient in Moroccan dishes that is simple to prepare and have on hand. Check out our Preserved Lemons recipe. Juicy, sweet kohlrabi is also a key ingredient in the salad. Learn all about this member of the cabbage family here.


For the eggs

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 qt. homemade or store-bought pickled beets

For the salad

  • 4 oz. (1 cup) honey glazed pecans
  • 1 tsp. ground Aleppo pepper
  • 6 salt-cured anchovy fillets in olive oil, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped preserved lemons
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup sherry vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 5 oz. (about 5 cups) mixed baby greens
  • 1 oz. (about 1 cup) mixed herbs and edible flowers, such as lovage, flowering chives, shiso, fennel fronds, nasturtium, goose tongue, and basil, thinly sliced
  • 5 medium radishes thinly sliced, preferably on a mandolin
  • 1 medium kohlrabi or 9 oz. broccoli stems, peeled, cut in half, and thinly sliced, preferably on a mandolin
  • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
  • 1 oz. (about 1 cup) finely grated idiazabal or manchego cheese
  • 1/4 oz. (about 2 Tbs.) freshly grated horseradish (optional)
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated lemon zest (from 1 large)


For the eggs

  • Bring a 2-quart pot of water to a boil over high heat. Gently add the eggs, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook for 7 minutes. Drain immediately and run under cold water until the eggs have cooled completely. Peel and transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Carefully pour enough of the pickling liquid over the eggs to cover, leaving the beets behind in the jar. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

For the salad

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 300°F.
  • Spread the honey-glazed pecans on parchment lined rimmed baking sheet. Mist lightly with water and sprinkle the Aleppo pepper evenly over the nuts, gently pressing the pepper to adhere. Bake until aromatic and warmed through, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • In a mortar and pestle, combine the anchovies, preserved lemons, 2 tsp. of the oil, garlic, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Pound the mixture to a paste, transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in the mustard and the vinegar. In a slow, steady stream, whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the greens, herbs, flowers, kohlrabi, radishes, and pecans and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss to lightly coat with the vinaigrette and gently transfer to a large serving platter.
  • Remove the pickled eggs from the brine and gently pat dry. Halve the eggs lengthwise and sprinkle the cut sides with the flakey sea salt. Arrange the eggs over the greens. Evenly sprinkle the cheese, horseradish, if using, and lemon zest over the salad and serve.
