Spring Cleaning time & Curried Egg Salad

Organizing, cleaning & taking stock

Spring & cleaning seem to go together right now.  While I am lacking sleep today with the moving the clocks ahead last night, I'm trying to get a little more organized all the way around. While cleaning my refrigerator I have been taking stock of what is on hand. Hopefully I can make better use of all of my condiments, beverages, etc.  I found that I had far too many condiments (What's with all the olives, I am wondering...more on that at in a later post.) I did however realize I had more fresh brown eggs than I previously thought.  It gave me a great opportunity to make a quick egg salad & even throw in some cashews which I found while straightening the pantry.  *Cashew nuts are packed with soluble dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals and packed with numerous health promoting phyto-chemicals; that help to protect against diseases and cancers.

What is in your refrigerator & pantry? Taking stock might give you some new culinary directions.

1 tablespoon, minced red onion

Serve this egg salad on bed of lettuce with crackers or on bread. When transporting egg salad

Curried Egg Salad with Crunchy Cash
make certain to include an ice pack to keep the salad cool & fresh.

Peel and chop the hard boiled eggs and put in a bowl with celery, red & green onions. Toss to mix briefly.
Add mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, parsley, and curry powder to the bowl & mix well.

  1. good work on the fridge! now lets see a post of the pantry ;)

  2. Ha, ha! Next time I'll do the pantry shot. You can always come & place your order here.

  3. I love curried egg salad. This differs from my recipe with the cashews. Nice addition!

  4. Pattie, the cashews add a nice crunchy texture to the salad. Either way, curried egg salad is delicious.
