  1. Peel hard boiled eggs. In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, vinegar, flax, dijon, tarragon, salt and pepper. Add cornichons and stir to combine. Place hard boiled eggs on top and mash with a potato masher or fork until well combined.
  2. Serve egg salad on top of your favorite toasted bread with thinly sliced radishes and pea shoots on top.
