Easter is always a fun time around here for several reasons: Easter candy, our annual big kids Easter egg hunt where the prize money goes up $5 every year, and my favorite part- leftover hard boiled eggs! One of my favorite things to make with hard boiled eggs is egg salad. I have always loved it and my mom generally has a pretty big bowl of it in her fridge after the Easter festivities are over. It’s a quick lunch , easy dinner, or the perfect side dish to something off the grill. Keep reading to learn how I make my egg salad and what I pair it with.
Start with hard boiled eggs. I used 6 and this will get me about three to four lunches out of it, because I am the only one in our house that likes egg salad so far! I fill my pot with water, just covering the eggs. Turn on high and when the water starts to boil, set the timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn burner off and remove eggs from the pot. Allow to cool before handling. Easy, right?
Peel the eggs, slice them, then put them into a bowl. If they are refrigerated before you make this, that is just fine!
I love my handle little egg slicing tool, but feel free to chop the eggs however you want. Then, to that, add a couple dollops of Miracle Whip.
Then add a little bit of mustard, a little sweet pickle juice, and some salt & pepper.
Stir it all together then pop in the fridge for 30 minutes so the flavors can meld together. Pure deliciousness. I like to eat it with a side of crackers, pita chips, or between two slices of bread. Let’s face it, anything that is worth eating is worth eating as a sandwich.
I stand by that rule.
The perfect complement to my Leftover Easter Egg Salad is Kraft’s Country Time Lemonade Starters.
Made with real lemon juice, these are so convenient to make! If you want a glass for yourself, add enough to make a glass! OR make enough for a crowd. Each container of Country Time Lemonade Starter makes three pitchers and all you have to do is add water! It eliminates the need for multiple beverages, making this option really affordable. So no matter who shows up for your Easter or after Easter festivities, you can be ready with a cold, refreshing drink in no time! Country Time Lemonade starters come in three flavors: Berry Lemonade, Classic Lemonade, and Half Lemonade Half Tea. So far, the Berry Lemonade is a hit with me and the kids! They love it.
Look for Country Time Lemonade Starters at your local WalMart in by the single serve juice and water enhancers. There will be demos at WalMart soon as well, so you can try this product before you purchase it! Check HERE and HERE to see if these demos are near you!
