  1. Put 3Litres of water and 100ml white vinegar in pot
  2. Bring to boil
  3. Crack one egg into small bowl
  4. Turn pot down to 3/10 and drop slowly into pot -  no bullsh*t whirlpool
  5. Crack second egg into small bowl and drop into pot
  6. While they are cooking for three minutes, fill a large bowl with water and a handful of ice
  7. Three minutes after dropping second egg in (hopefully you did that fast), scoop eggs out and put in chilled water - we don’t want them to continue cooking
  8. Trim the tail on the eggs if you desire - put aside
  9. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinaigrette, olive oil, salt and pepper to make a dressing
  10. In a separate large mixing bowl, add the spinach, pears, pomegranate seeds and pumpkin seeds to the bowl and toss gently to mix and coat well
