As I’ve said many times, I like simple food. I love being able to take a few ingredients and whip up something delicious. I mean, really detailed recipes with all sorts of ingredients can be really delicious as well. But I love being able to open my refrigerator and/or pantry on any given day and have everything I need to make something delicious, even when we I don’t have much on hand. And nothing fits the bill quite like this Egg and Olive Salad.
Since I have such a hot, passionate love affair with eggs, it’s pretty much a given that on any given day you can open my fridge and find hard boiled eggs. I generally just eat these on their own as part of my breakfast, but I also love making a simple egg salad with them to eat as sandwiches.
And sometimes, if I really want to kick it up a notch, I’ll add olives into the mix to make Egg and Olive Salad. The delicious, brininess of the olives elevates a the glorious egg salad, taking your whole sandwich to new heights (can you tell I love olives just as much as eggs?).
This is so quick to make and is an excellent option for tea sandwiches at a ladies luncheon as well as a great way to use up all of those leftover Easter eggs. Either way, hop on into the kitchen and throw this salad together- you’ll be happy you did!
