Easy Egg Salad with Dill, Perfect for Leftover Easter Eggs
As you can imagine leftover Easter eggs are not a big deal in my house, we eat them up. Many are not as accustomed to having hard boiled eggs on hand, and an easy egg salad like this is a tasty simple way to enjoy them. Why not whip up a batch with your leftover Easter eggs 😀
- 6 large hard boiled eggs
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise I used Hellmann's Light
- 1/2 tsp dry dill weed
- salt & pepper to taste
- Peel the eggs and rinse off any shell.
- Chop the eggs.
- Mix the ingredients with a fork, mashing down with the tines occasionally to break up the yolk and whites.
- Serve over salad, on sandwich, or with crackers.
While dry dill has been used in this recipe, fresh dill can be used instead. You will need more freshly chopped dill than dried though. Try a 1/2 tablespoon and add a little more if you like.
