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.

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.
