A post-Easter recipe for all of those colored eggs (and what to drink with it...)

If you end up with a lot of extra colored eggs after Easter and are looking for a way to use them up, here's a recipe for a delicious alternative to the standard egg salad. My husband and I have made this for years and love it. I don't have amounts for anything because it's all pretty much "to taste":

Curried Egg Salad

Hard boiled eggs
Mayonnaise
Finely chopped red onion (or chopped green onion)
Chopped cilantro
Curry powder
Salt
Pepper

Shell the eggs. Cut them in half lengthwise, scoop out the yolks, and chop the whites. Put all into a medium-sized bowl. Add enough mayonnaise to hold the eggs together and keep the yolks from tasting too dry. Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir gently to mix.

This tastes delicious on toasted wheat bread, or on freshly baked Naan or pita bread. It's even good on crackers like Wheat Thins. You can garnish the sandwiches with thinly sliced cucumber, or with alfalfa sprouts.

Wash it all down with an off-dry Riesling from Chateau St. Michelle, Hogue or Dr. Konstantin Frank. Or enjoy it with Zardetto Prosecco.

Happy Easter!
