Homemade Healthy Egg Salad with Dill and Mayo
How To Turn Flavorful Deviled Eggs Into A Spreadable Salad
If you're craving the mouthwatering flavors of deviled eggs but don't want to make a typical recipe, try whipping up a spreadable deviled egg salad.
This salad is a cross between deviled eggs and egg salad, but instead of piping the filling into the whites, mix everything and eat it on its own, on a sandwich, or with crackers.
While a classic egg salad usually includes mayo, mustard, vinegar, and herbs, the deviled version also incorporates key ingredients like pickle relish and paprika to set it apart.
You can also incorporate additional ingredients for heat or replace your paprika with another seasoning, such as hot sauce, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, or chili powder
Scoop out the yolks and mash them separately, mix in the rest of your ingredients, chop the whites, then stir everything together for a creamy, spreadable consistency.
Spice puts the "devil" in deviled eggs, so make it as spicy as your tongue can handle. If you don't have pickle relish, you can also just finely chop up some pickles.
Traditional egg salad contains more herbs than deviled eggs, but feel free to add in some chopped chives or green onions. You can also stir in some diced, crispy bacon bits.
