Classic Egg Salad

DSC_5280

With Easter just around the corner, eggs are on my mind. You may have read a recent post of mine titled How to Hard Boil Eggs, where I shared the nutritional benefits of eggs as a superfood, along with an easy method to achieve the perfect hard boiled egg. And when it comes down to putting those perfect eggs to use in a recipe, egg salad is the obvious choice.

What I love about egg salad is it’s versatility. With the right amount of seasonings and textured ingredients you can whip up a delicious, healthy meal in no time. The possibilities are endless. Spread it on a soft roll to make a sandwich, serve it as a dip with your favorite crunchy crackers, or pile it on top of a bed of fresh lettuce for a gluten-free snack.
