Egg salad is a favorite classic. There's nothing easier than mixing hard boiled eggs with a bit of mayonnaise and mustard to make a great sandwich. This is a great way to use up extra hard boiled eggs.
Easter is still a few weeks away and I am already planning for leftovers! We tend to dye a lot of Easter eggs and you can only eat so many hard boiled eggs and I just can't let them go to waste.
Egg Salad makes a delicious lunch and uses up some of those hard boiled eggs. Of course, you might also want to make this deviled egg pasta salad!
I have three teenagers and they still love to dye eggs. Heck, I still love to dye eggs! It's so fun watching the eggs transform into a different color. However, they don't really want to hunt for eggs anymore.
Instead they want to hide the eggs for all their younger cousins. No matter hiding or hunting the eggs, everyone seems to have fun.
One of my favorite ways to use this egg salad is with homemade Honey Oat Bread! If you love egg salad, you'll also want to try this delicious Ham Salad.
Another great way to cook hard boiled eggs is Instant Pot Eggs!

I love coloring eggs with my kids every Easter as well, and of course, we always make way too many because it is such fun. So such a salad is always a great idea for using up some of them, we eat lots and lots of dishes containing hard boiled eggs the week after Easter.
Our fridge will be full of hard boiled eggs.
I love egg salad. There are so many different ways that it can be prepared. I love this simple, and straightforward, presentation. Yummy!
You are so right! I often vary my version depending on what we have in the fridge.

Your version of egg salad looks delicious! I love the little twists you added. The two kinds of mustard add great flavor and the horeradish gives a nice kick. Plus the crunch from the red bell peppers-- yum! Can't wait to make this!

I love the addition of horseradish to this recipe! I never thought of that and it sounds fantastic. I'm definitely trying this recipe next time I make egg salad.
The horseradish adds just a touch of flavor. I hope you give this a try!
