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.
Easter Leftovers Hard-Boiled Egg Pea Salad
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise

- 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.
I like to serve this Easter leftovers hard-boiled egg pea salad over a Spring mix and add additional salad toppings to make it a complete meal. You can include things like pepper rings, black olives, sliced cherry tomatoes and even bacon to take the flavors to the next level.
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.
