This recipe is a great way to utilize your dyed Easter eggs! The sandwich spread (which can be made in a large batch and held in the refrigerator for a week) is also a perfect way to add some excitement and added flavor to just about any sandwich.

Egg Salad Ingredients:

8 hard boiled eggs, peeled
3/4 cup sandwich spread (see recipe ingredients below)
1/4 cup onions, minced

Sandwich Spread Ingredients:

2 Tbs Dijon mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp paprika
1 Tbs chopped parsley
1 tsp salt and pepper

Directions:

Combine and stir the sandwich spread ingredients in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

To hard boil the eggs: Add eight eggs in a pot and cover with cold water. Without the lid, bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover the pot with a tight lid, turn the heat off and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain, cool and peel. 

Separate the cooked egg whites from the yolks. Reserve the whites in a large mixing bowl. Chop your onions and add them to the bowl with the egg whites. 

Mix the yolks with the sandwich spread and mash with a fork until blended. Then mix in with the egg whites. Taste to adjust for seasoning and enjoy! 

Pro Tip: Egg salad is always delicious on a butter croissant with some crunchy lettuce!
