Need a way to use up all those Easter eggs; innundated with eggs from your backyard flock; or just looking for a really good egg salad recipe to add to your repertoire? This deviled egg salad is the answer. It has all the flavor of deviled eggs, but comes in a spreadable form that you can use on sandwiches. Here’s the recipe.
Deviled Egg Salad Recipe
12 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 Tbsp sweet relish
2 tsp white vinegar
2 tsp yellow mustard
1/4 tsp salt
Note: Most egg salad recipe only call for six eggs. This one uses 12. If you’d prefer to make a smaller batch, just halve all the ingredients.
What You Do:
Peel your hard-boiled eggs. Then, cut them in half, and scoop out the yolks. Place the yolks in a small bowl.
Chop up the egg whites, and place them in a larger bowl.
Measure all of the remaining ingredients (except the paprika) into the bowl with the yolks.
Use a fork to mash up the yolks and combine them with the other ingredients. This will give you a true deviled egg filling to use in your egg salad.
Combine the filling with the egg whites. Stir until the whites are well coated.
Sprinkle the finished egg salad with paprika. Then, hide it in the back of the fridge, so no one else finds it.
For a Lighter Version: Replace half of the mayo with low-fat plain yogurt.
