Egg and Pea Salad...one of our favorites!

One of the things I love about Easter Time 
is boiling up and decorating eggs.

 We usually boil up 12-18 eggs and so we always have PLENTY to make up Deviled Eggs and one of our FAVORITE salads...

Just 5 ingredients, but LOTS of flavor.
This is pretty much a complete meal in one.
I usually send a bowl of this salad,
 plus an apple and some kind of a muffin in our lunches.

This is also a great filling for croissants as well.
yummy, Yummy, YUMMY is what this is!  
Egg and Pea Salad
(the perfect salad to make at Easter to use your “Hard boiled eggs”)  

2 cups frozen peas
6 hard boiled eggs (peeled and chunked) (sometimes I add in 8)
½ pound bacon cooked crisp and crumbled
½ cup “Miracle Whip” Salad Dressing
grated cheese (optional) 
In bowl layer peas, eggs and bacon--Stir in Miracle Whip—let stand for 8 hours before serving. Sprinkle with grated cheese if you like.  Stir before serving.  
(sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like)

Enjoy some boiled egg 
yummy-ness today!

Yum! I wonder if I could use plain yogurt to replace the mayo in this salad. Have you tried it before?

Yay! Another yummy recipe to add to my file. :)
I made deviled eggs for Easter this year...I didn't know my family liked them so much. I guess I'll have to make them once in a while.

Looks delicious! Looks like Easter was a hit at your house.

I bet if you used plain yogurt with maybe a little lemon juice, it would work! The Salad Dressing has a little "zing" to it, but I bet substituting lemon juice and yogurt for it, would work out great as well! Now, I want to make up a batch to experiment with that!
