While kids might have enjoyed all the fun of decorating and playing with those traditional Easter eggs, food waste needs to be considered. Just because those brightly colored eggs might have been found, they don’t need to find their way to the garbage bin.
One tasty way to use those leftover eggs is egg salad. While some people might have served several plates of deviled eggs over the holiday, egg salad can be another recipe to have in your repertoire.
While there are several variations, a basic egg salad recipe contains hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, onion, celery, lemon juice and seasonings. One of the reasons why this recipe satisfies is the crunchy texture from the celery and the creaminess from the egg.
Some people enjoy egg salad on its own. Others prefer it as an egg salad sandwich. If you choose to eat it as a sandwich, a hearty bread is best. A nutty wheat bread or an artisan bread is a nice contrast to the egg salad.
