Curry Egg Salad

This one is a favorite in our house. This is easy, inexpensive, filling, lasts a long time in the fridge, good for any meal of the day, and so tasty!

The recipe I originally found (I think online somewhere) was very basic with about three ingredients. I added more but like all my meals, they can be simplified to accommodate what you have on hand, or offer freedom to get creative and add new vegetables or exchange one for another. For example: the nuts, use any kind you have!


Chop the following,
6 hard boiled eggs
1/2 red type apple
1/4 white onion
hand full of cilantro
hand full of pecans
few scallions
1/2 bell pepper
few leaves spinach

Mix the first ingredients with,
2 teaspoons Curry powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
3-4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise (we either use a home made Paleo Mayo or grape seed Mayo. Grape Seed Oil products are healthy, in my opinion, so long as they aren't heated. When heated the oil goes rancid)

We love this in lettuce cups from our garden. It is great with chips, crackers, as a sandwich, or just with a spoon or fork. We often double the recipe because it ends up being a quick go-to snack and disappears so darn fast. Also, we use curry often and have many kinds, so I use 1 teaspoon hot curry and the second teaspoon regular curry powder. Adding a dash of red pepper might be nice too.
