Mediterranean Egg Salad

Now that the egg hunt is over, if you’re wondering what to do with those leftover hard-boiled Easter eggs. You’re in luck. Turn those leftovers into Mediterranean egg salad or sandwich. It’s a simple, easy and delicious recipe, and it will come in handy now that the kids are on spring break.

Mediterranean Egg Salad

Growing up, I remember my mom making egg salad; hers was relatively straightforward, boiled eggs and butter mostly; occasionally she will add other ingredients but most of the time she kept it simple.

Mediterranean Egg Salad Ingridents For this recipe, I used chipotle mayonnaise and to give it an extra kick; I added Aleppo pepper. You can find Aleppo pepper is a speciality store. However, traditionally the best choice would’ve been yogurt or olive oil mayonnaise or regular mayonnaise with a splash of olive oil for good measure. To give it a bit of a crunch, I added chickpeas, red bell peppers and jalapeno pepper. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t super spicy.  I understand your reservation though if you want to leave out the jalapeno pepper. Overall, the recipe came together perfectly.
