Egg and Olive Salad Spread

Egg and Olive Sandwich
With Easter being over,  I have a lot of hard boiled eggs to eat.  The kids and I enjoy dying eggs. I usually put the eggs in their lunches and make egg salad sandwiches.  Egg and Olive  spread is a nice filling for sandwiches or to spread on crackers.   The secret ingredient is  White Balsamic Dressing.  I found this recipe for the White Balsamic dressing in Tea Time magazine.  It contains mayonnaise, white balsamic vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper.  Just the right flavorings to compliment egg and olives.  In this recipe,  I finely chop six hard boiled eggs and  some olives in my food processor.  I put them in a  mixing bowl and added the White Balsamic Dressing.  Then stir it well.  You can chill or serve right away.
I spread some on bread, added a piece of lettuce and had a delicious sandwich for lunch. What a great way to enjoy Easter Eggs.

  2. Geraldine, this looks like such a delicious spread and I love the fact that you can use some of the hard-boiled Easter eggs that we all still seem to have at hand! Really delicious and creative idea! I looked at the Time Time Magazine website - it looks utterly delightful!
