Cilantro Lemon-Lime Egg Salad

This afternoon, I was craving more of the yummy Chickpea Avocado Salad I made this weekend, but I was out of chickpeas.  I had one avocado in the house, and remembered Martha Stewart's faviorite egg salad recipe I've been wanting to try.   I boiled my eggs the Martha Stewart way, and chopped them up.  Then cut into my was brown and yucky.  I was so bummed!   I sat there thinking about the avocado chickpea salad, and how much I loved the cilantro and citrus together.  So I decided to throw similar flavors together with the eggs and see how it would taste...IT'S MY NEW FAVORITE EGG SALAD!!!  So Simple.  So Good.

Cilantro Lemon-Lime Egg Salad

  • 5 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of cilantro chopped
  • 1 tablespoon diced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of Mayonnaise (any kind, light, reg - not Miracle Whip)
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • salt to taste (I used sea salt)
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and lightly fold/mix everything together.  Serve on a bed of lettuce, favorite bread or crackers.  

I had the egg salad on a lightly toasted English muffin!  Mmm, mmm good!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
