Egg Salad With a Twist

"I was challenged to an Egg Salad "Cook Off" by another Zaar chef. So here is my recipe. It's a little saucy so if you want it less saucy just add less of the Mayo and olive juice. You can eat this on crackers or as a sandwich. It's very easy to make. Since olive juice has salt in it, I did not add more salt to the recipe. I have a sensitivity to pepper so I did not add that either. You can add both if you want to. Prep time includes the time for boiling the eggs. Cook time is refrigeration time. Times are approximate."

  • For best results in making the eggs easier to peel follow these instructions:

  • Place the eggs in a small saucepan and cover with cold water.
  • Place the pan on the stove and bring to a boil.
  • As soon as the water comes to a boil remove it from the burner and set it aside.
  • Let the eggs sit in the pan of water for 10 minutes.
  • Drain water from the pan and put ice cubes on the eggs.
  • Fill with cold water and let the eggs set until cool enough to handle.
  • Crack and peel eggs under cold running water and place in a bowl.
  • Chop the eggs.
  • Add the chopped green onions and olives and mix well.
  • In a small bowl or cup, mix the Mayo, horseradish sauce and olive juice.
  • Pour over the egg mixture and mix well.
  • Refrigerate for one hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Serve on crackers or as a sandwich.

  1. I love egg salad and am always looking for new ways/tastes of making it. This was indeed with a twist, the horseradish was very nice, gave it just that little zing. Made it just as stated and would perhaps even add a little more horseradish next time. Made for PAC Spring '08. Thanks for posting.
  2. This was an ok egg salad. It had a different taste from the horseradish and olives, but it just seemed to be missing something to us.
  3. I loved the green olives, their juice, and the horseradish -- flavors I would never have paired in a million years on my own! I will be serving this regularly on crackers or lightly toasted bread slices for a sandwich. Thanks, AuntWoofieWoof! Made for Beverage Tag game.
  4. This is very good and different. Next time I'll omit horseradish sauce. Thanks AuntWoofieWoof :) Made for market tag.
  5. I love egg salad. This one has a nice *twist* for sure! Loved the zing from the horseradish and green olives. Served on lightly toasted bread. Was wonderful, thanks for sharing. I will definitely make this again... kind of makes regular egg salad boring after this ;) YUM ~V


I just love to cook. I love to experiment with different recipes and love to get new ones. I love to share my recipes and love to have others taste things I make. I baked a lot while I was living at high school. I have babysat for over 33 years for different people I have cooked meals for them when it was needed. At one time, I babysat 2 children in my apartment and cooked dinner for them, their mom and their grandmother. I loved it. I took care of them for a couple of years. The name AuntWoofieWoof has a very special meaning. I babysat for a family with 3 children in their home several years ago. One day the youngest boy came up to me and said "Aunt Woofie Woof......." and proceeded to say what he had to say. He called me that name for 2 days. When I asked him where he got the name from, his reply was "It was on a Dr Suess tape my momma got me at the Library". :lol: I thought it was so cute that I decided to use it on the internet. I babysat for that family for 8 years!! That little boy is now in middle school. I still see him and his family every now and then. His mom and I keep in touch over the phone. I usually spend Thanksgiving Day with them. It is fun watching the kids grow into fine young adults. The oldest daughter, is in her early 20's, is working and has her own place. She is a beautiful young lady. I am a Substitute Playground Supervisor and a Crossing Guard at an Elementary School. I love both jobs. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="RSC-HiddenGem-part"title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" width=90%> . <img src="">
