Here are 2 easy and snazzy ways to eat your egg salad.
I love egg salad. Love it. I have a secret recipe that I will give out upon request.
You can eat this for lunch (as I did), or serve it as an appetizer for Easter, instead of the typical deviled eggs!
Dare to be different!
These first appetizers can be called involtini, which in Italian usually refers to a meat or fish rolled up with stuffing and then sliced.
You can call these sushi, they certainly look like sushi, and you are sort of using raw fish.
But let's just call them "smoked salmon roll-ups", because really, that's all they are.
Try and find a long piece of smoked salmon, one that you can cut into long rectangles.
Then you can slice them up into perfect little rounds for pretty hors d'oeuvres.
The slices I used for the photos were too short, therefore they came out a bit uneven. (My stomach didn't notice the difference, they still tasted good).
Stacey Snacks' Salmon Roll-ups:
Lay your smoked salmon strips on a cutting board and put a small amount of egg salad on the end of each slice of smoked salmon. You can put some dill sprigs or chives in with the salmon and roll tightly to form into bundles.
Place bundles in the fridge until ready to serve.
With a sharp knife, slice into rounds and place on serving dish. Garnish with snipped chives or fresh dill.
Next on the list are little whole wheat toasts.......mounded with a shmeer of mashed avocado a dollop of egg salad (what is a dollop anyway?) and a teaspoon of caviar (buy the cheapy stuff for this dish). Garnish with chives.
