Here’s a great way to use up those leftover Easter Eggs you might have. I’m actually putting this recipe together on Easter Sunday afternoon of 2021, so I might have Easter on my mind today.

It was always fun as a young kid to dye eggs for our Easter egg hunts at the church and at home around this time of year.

Mama would buy one of those PAAS Easter Egg Kits with the little tablets of color and help me dye our eggs each year. She never got fancy with any type of designs, but it’s one of my great memories of being in the kitchen with her as a youngster.

She made egg salad every now and then. And, she used her homemade pickles which always seemed to make all of her recipes that used pickle relish that much better.

As I mention below, there are hundreds of ways to boil and peel eggs. Just use the method that works best for you. I didn’t get into any of those here.

Egg Salad Sandwiches are great so I hope you’ll try our recipe soon.
