  1. Cut eggs in two and put yolks in a bowl. Mash yolks with sugar and lemon juice, and beat in the sour cream with a wooden spoon, until smooth. Thin with milk if necessary. Season with salt and pepper. (This can all be done in a food processor or a mixer, but it is easy enough by hand.)
  2. Slice egg whites into thin strips, and toss with greens and dressing. Serve.
