If there is one good thing about coloring Easter eggs, it is all the leftover hard-boiled eggs we have lying around the days immediately following Easter. I love hard-boiled eggs to begin with but am always looking for delicious variations to foods I enjoy. For today’s post, I am sharing a recipe for Easter leftovers, hard-boiled egg and pea salad. I like this recipe for lots of reasons but primarily because it feels very Spring-like to me which makes me think warmer, brighter days.
To make this simple Easter leftovers hard-boiled egg pea salad, you add some chopped onion, celery, chopped eggs and peas with just a few simple condiments to have a simple salad that is ready in minutes but doesn’t skimp on flavor.
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- 8 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
- 1-10 ounce package of frozen peas, cooked
- salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
- Spring mix salad to serve
- Mix the onion, celery, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper together. Stir in the chopped hard-boiled eggs and the cooked and cooled peas. Serve on top of Spring mix salad and add your favorite salad toppings or serve in a wrap or lettuce leaves.
With the warmer weather around the corner this dish could even be served as a wrap for an on-the go type of meal or wrapped in lettuce leaves for a dish that is more portable for something like a picnic in the park. Serve it with some chips or fresh fruit for a filling lunch or light dinner.
