Zesty Egg Salad

Zesty Egg Salad

I <3 egg salad. I really, really <3 egg salad. (I wish that I could include a cute little puffy, pounding heart…because I really like and love egg salad.) If I’m not having a green salad for lunch, chances are I’m having egg salad, on a sandwich or with pita chips.

Well, I recently gave my typical egg salad a makeover by including some horseradish and green onions. It was a “Zest-ify Makeover,” if you will. I really love the extra flavor and spicy pop from the horseradish…DE-lish!

(Also, this is definitely a “to taste” kinda recipe…so depending on how creamy and zesty you want your egg salad, add mayo and horseradish to your liking.)

Give it a whirl next time you’re making egg salad!!!

Erin, I chuckled when I read this post because my family of six loves eggs too. In fact, so much, I’ve perfected peeling the boiled egg with virtually any effort by adding baking soda, lots of ice, patience and playing bumper cars till the shells fall off. You may know these tips, but I thought I’d share since you heart eggs, also: http://momonamission.me/worlds-easiest-boiled-eggs/

Radishes make a good zesty addition too.
