#WCW What's Cookin' Wednesday! A festive take on egg salad!

This week's #WCW features a fun and festive take on egg salad and making it healthy for you and your family. 

Easter weekend is almost here! I love Easter for many reasons—family get togethers, spring weather, spring cleaning, a re-birth, re-awakening….and….all those hard boiled eggs! MMMMMM! Egg salad is one of my favorite things! In the old days I would eat it in between 2 slices of bread, but nowadays I eat it as a lettuce wrap to avoid those unnecessary processed carbs!

Here is a healthy version of Classic Egg Salad. 
This  makes about 4 servings.

2 tablespoons  minced red onions or shallots
8 hard- boiled eggs
¼ cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 tablespoon dried parsley or 1.5 of fresh
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (yes, use a real lemon!)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon kosher or finely ground sea salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper(or try white pepper if you never have, love it!)

Soak the minced onion or shallot in a small bowl of ice water for about 5 minutes to remove the “bite.” You can peel and dice the eggs while you wait!
Drain the onion, put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix together and enjoy!

If you want to change it up a bit, try adding…
- ¾ tsp of red pepper flakes
-  2 tablespoons of crispy bacon
- ½ tsp curry powder and some halved red grapes!! Ohhh Delicious!!
