I know that you’re probably fed up with ALL that Easter food – hams, eggs, even the yummy cakes and sweet treats. So you may wonder, why oh why does she post EGG salad NOW! Well, I certainly am fed with Easter food (I’m living on smoothies and salads for last few days and I can’t even bear the thought of smoked, cooked ham. Just NO!) BUT after Easter, the ONE question emerges in my head (probably yours too)?! What to do with all that hard-boiled Easter eggs?

I have like TONS of boiled eggs in my house. We made around 35 colored eggs this year + we received dozens from our family too. It’s hard-boiled eggs OVERLOAD to the max! I bet that you probably looking for ways to use all that hard-boiled Easter Eggs leftovers, right? Well same here!

So, here’s one suggestion how to use those eggs leftovers and make a delicious and HEALTHY salad that you can serve for breakfast, or pack and take to work for lunch. This Ginger Egg Salad is so amazingly creamy and yet so light. It’s great for picnics. And the outdoor BBQ parties too. Lovely!

To make this salad, you’ll only need a few simple ingredients – hard boiled eggs, extra virgin olive oil, Greek yogurt, few spices and some fresh veggies.

This Ginger Egg Salad is special because it’s mayo-free and doesn’t contain any sour cream. It’s so light-textured and just beautiful. Instead of heavy creams and mayo, I used virgin olive oil and Greek yogurt. Olive oil enriched this salad with many nutrients and heart healthy fats – monounsaturated fatty acids while Greek yogurt gave the salad a little protein boost, without excessive and unnecessary calories.

All those HEALTHY ingredients made this Ginger Egg Salad a super low-calorie and PERFECT for spring!

This Ginger Egg Salad is well balanced too. It has everything you need in one meal – a right amount of healthy fats, proteins and some fibers… and other nutrients – vitamins and minerals. It’s very nutritious too. It will keep you well fed for hours.

But what makes this salad really special is the addition of freshly grated super-spice GINGER. Ginger gave the salad most wonderful zesty scent and a bit spiciness, but many health benefits too. The addition of fresh aromatic ginger in combination with pungent Dijon mustard made out of this salad a real spring tasty sensation.
