We all color more Easter eggs than we need -- after all, what kid can dye three or four and call it enough? Here are some egg salad recipes for your leftover Easter eggs - or for any time of year you have a need for egg salad!
Breads that go great with egg salad are homemade white or wheat, pita breads, buns of all types or bagels. Serve it in a bread bowl and surround it with crackers for something different! Any of these recipes also make nice tea sandwiches. Spread on slices of bread that you've trimmed off the crust and cut into squares or triangles.
