Note: This cold egg soup is a part of our family Passover ritual, combining two symbolic ingredients-eggs and salt. The eggs are a symbol of new life in the spring season and the salt represents the tears of the Jewish people when they were slaves in Egypt. Many families serve each guest a whole hard-boiled egg dipped in salt.
- 12 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
- 4 to 6 cups cold water
- 2 to 4 tablespoons coarse salt
Step 1In a large bowl, mash the eggs roughly with a potato masher. Add 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of the salt. Add additional water and salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. Ladle into soup bowls.
