Boiled eggs

Boiled eggs are wonderful all on their own. You can boil up a batch of them at the beginning of the week, store them in the fridge and just grab one any time you need a quick, healthy snack. Sometimes, though, you want to do more with your hard boiled eggs.

Of course, deviled eggs offer tons of variation for using hard boiled eggs.

Plus, there are a few non-salad recipes in there as well, to help you mix things up even more!

Mix and mash to the consistency that suits you and stir in some finely chopped fresh chives, salt and pepper. Spread the egg salad mixture in the middle of a piece of wrap bread and top it with strips of red bell pepper, thin slices of red onion and romaine lettuce. Fold and serve. L.O.V.E.ly!

3. Warm Potato, Egg, Tuna and Pea Salad

“We will make this again.” Am3l1a

This dish comes with a tasty basil mayonnaise recipe you can save to use with other foods. Boil chunks of desiree potatoes until just tender. Add thawed frozen peas to heat through for a few seconds. Drain and put the potatoes and peas in a bowl along with slices of green onion and flaked tuna. Give it a stir and set it aside. Prepare the basil mayonnaise by whisking together some yogurt, mayonnaise, basil pesto and lemon juice along with some salt and pepper. Add baby spinach to the potato salad while it is still warm so that the leaves just begin to wilt. Serve topped with sliced hard boiled eggs and the basil mayonnaise. Season it with some salt and pepper and enjoy its delicious combination of textures and flavors.

6. Easy Potato Salad Recipe with Tips

“Will keep this recipe for sure.” Karla

The hard boiled eggs are optional but they do add wonderfully to the dish – so why leave them out? Cook the potatoes in salted water until they are tender. Cool them in an ice bath, peel and chop them up, then add vinegar and some salt. Pour warm water over finely chopped red onions, leave them for a few minutes before giving them a rinse (it mutes the flavor a bit). Mix together sour cream, yellow mustard and mayonnaise and add it to the potatoes along with the onions, finely chopped celery, chopped eggs, fresh herbs and a finely chopped dill pickle. Gently combine everything and season with salt and pepper as needed. Refrigerate the salad before serving then watch it become a new staple for your family meals!
