    FLKeysJen's Note:

    Not the typical bland, mayonnaise-rich mash you're imagining! The author of "The Soul of a New Cuisine: A Discovery of the Foods and Flavors of Africa" created this version of egg salad that has heat from chiles and paprika as well as soy sauce for a salty note.

      I scaled this back to use 2 eggs but as I didn't have peanuts I dry roasted some blanched almonds (I always dry roast nuts either in a pan or in the oven as I feel the natural oils are enough to brown them) and chopped them up and then proceeded to do as per recipe and served on a toasted wholemeal English muffin and WOW what an explosion of flavours in the mouth this was and made a really nice change from a mayo based egg salad. Thank you ~Jen~, made for Please Review My Recipes.

      Talk about spicy! It worked, and I'm glad it did. I thought many of the ingredients were a bit unuasual for such a salad, but because I like them all they turned out really good!

      Hard boiled eggs and peanuts? My first experience and they're good together. This is intensely-flavored and we enjoyed it served on a bed of mixed lettuce and spinach. I cut back on the oil which probably contributed to the intensity.
