    Love this little twist on the traditional egg mayonnaise salad. Cumin is such a versatile spice. It never ceases to surprise me!

    Oh, yes! This is something I would definitely love, as apart from the eggs I love cumin and cilantro but too many eggs and mayo for my age, as I explain in my last post as well.
