Zesty Egg Salad

Happy Thursday, y’all!   I have a great many recipes to share with you and was in a bit of a quandary about which to post today, so I asked the opinion of my young diabetic friend.  He took one look at this and it was all over.

He is apparently a big egg salad fan.

I am too, for the simple reason I don’t care for egg whites – unless they’re whipped into a nice, tasty meringue and topping a chocolate cream pie, but we won’t go there right now.  (In fact, we won’t go there at all.)  If I had my way, there would be all-yolk eggs…along with an all-bacon pig.  Okay, a 50% bacon, 30% sausage and 20% spare rib pig.

Hey – a girl can dream, can’t she?

So where was I?  Oh, yes – I don’t care for egg whites.  However, a good egg salad makes them quite palatable – and this, my friends, is a good egg salad.  And since Easter (or Chocolate Bunny Day, as we call it at the Sushi Bar) is right around the corner, this is a delicious way to use up some of those hard-boiled eggs we all tend to have a surfeit of afterwards.
