Hard boil the quail eggs (3minutes) and let them cool down before peeling the shell off (Note: Don't try to boil fresh quail eggs, you won't be able to peel them. Best to use 3 week old eggs for boiling). This will give you the time to chop the tomatoes, the lettuce, toast the bread and cut it into squares.
Peel the quail eggs and cut them ino halves. Put the eggs, tomatoes, lettuce and the bread into a suitable bowl and drizzle the dressing over the lot. Mix well.

The Sweet & Sour Quail Egg Salad is easy to make and great as an appetizer or as a side dish to a main meal.
