Recipe by Pumpkie
I was looking for something to do with all the hard boiled Easter eggs and wanted a different egg salad, this a recipe she would make for her daughter. I love the different flavors in this instead of plain egg salad. I made mine with the mustard powders and another batch with the cayenne pepper. Hope you enjoy a different twist on this egg salad. Preparation time does not include time for boiling eggs.

It was okay. This made me realize I'm not a big fan of curry powder unless it's used as a seasoning in thai food. I wasn't sure if I should add the celery because I'm not used to my egg salad crunching, but the celery and curry powder worked really well together. It's really good if you know you like the taste of curry, but if you're not a big fan, you may not like it as much.
- 9 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
- 1⁄3 cup prepared mayonnaise
