This is about as timely of a holiday/post-holiday recipe I think I’ve ever been. Egg salad the day after Easter – you got it!

I know if you are like me, right now you probably have a handful of hard boiled eggs in the fridge. I actually have been getting back into the habit of making hard boiled eggs the last couple of weeks to have for snacks, add into salads and make egg salad, which I love. I usually have eggs for breakfast but I’ve been trying to switch things up lately so that I can eat them at other times of they day.

I typically make egg salad simply, like this Creamy Egg Salad with Capers I shared a while back. This time around I was inspired to make it a little differently, adding smoked paprika to it for a kick in flavor. I also prepared it differently than I normally would – I stumbled across this Curried Egg Salad recipe the other day and watched it’s video and saw how she mashed the egg yolks up first and mixed with the dressing ingredients to make it extra creamy. Maybe everyone does this, but this was new to me and pretty genius. I used this technique immediately and my husband (not knowing I did anything differently) had many compliments about his lunch that day. Who knew I was missing out on this egg salad technique all these years?

My favorite way to serve egg salad is open-faced on toasted rye bread with sliced tomatoes and red onion. For a lighter lunch I opted to serve this Greek Yogurt Egg Salad with Smoked Paprika with lots of fresh sliced cucumbers, tomatoes and rice crackers.

    I didn’t really think about how perfect this timing is! I have so many colored and decorated eggs that need to be used!
