Chunky Healthy Egg Salad #SundaySupper

Happy Easter!!!

I just love Easter!  It is truly the sign of Spring.  One of the best things about Easter or Passover besides chocolate, Easter Lilly’s, chocolate, ham, chocolate, spring clothes, chocolate and hard-boiled eggs is creating fabulous recipes with your leftover food!  But one thing that is a tad hard for me is coming up with creative fun recipes using your leftover food.  So today for #SundaySupper we are sharing with you recipes to make with your leftover food. I already got a sneak peek at some delicious looking recipes, so be sure to check them out at the end of the post.  One thing I always have leftover is hard-boiled eggs.  I tend to make a lot of them because I like to color them the night before Easter.  It’s always been a family tradition.  So with my leftover hard-boiled eggs I made for you Chunky Healthy Egg Salad.

My egg salad is so light, creamy, chunky and healthy and full of flavor. I never make egg salad until Easter time, I don’t understand why? Because it is so good. My egg salad is a little different from the traditional egg salad because it is made with tomatoes, chives, parsley greek yogurt, lemon juice and a pinch of mayonnaise. No one can tell it is healthy for you! It’s also so pretty when you put it together. Just look at the fresh tomatoes and herbs with my eggs.

What I like about this salad is that the hard-boiled eggs are cut into sixths so it’s nice and chunky. Plus adding tomatoes gives it a little bit of a different flavor. Egg salad is so versatile when it comes to flavor. If you like heat to your egg salad, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or siracha sauce. Yum!

I have to share with you how to make the perfect hard-boiled egg. This recipe will give you perfect eggs every-time and one thing is, don’t use just bought eggs from the grocery store otherwise they are hard to peel.

  • Add eggs to a pot and just cover with water.
  • Bring to a boil and cover and simmer for 15 minutes
  • Run the pot with the eggs in it under cold water for 2 minutes.
  • Take the eggs out and peel

Notes
If you have hard boiled eggs, skip the first step.

To make lower calorie and less cholesterol, add more egg whites and take out some of the yolk.

Place the egg shells in your garden for extra nutrition in your garden, plus put around plants to keep snails away.

This salad is perfect to eat on its own or served on a bed of lettuce, on crackers or as a sandwich. To make it fewer calories you can always add more egg whites and take out some of the yolk.

Oh and don’t throw out the egg shells, add them to the garden. It gives the garden extra nutrition and if you place the shells around your plant it prevents snails from eating your plant. I did that and it actually worked. I saved my basil! 🙂

I hope you have a great Easter

  1. My basil has been gnawed by something but I have no idea what because I never see the culprit in action. I’m going to try your egg shell trick and see if it helps!
