Easter is just around the corner and I’ll bet many families are preparing to hardboil and dye eggs before Sunday. I love hardboiled eggs so much, I always make a few extra to enjoy after Easter, even after I eat up all the fun, pretty dyed ones.
Besides eggs, I always find that I have a lot of left-over ham after Easter as well. I developed this Ham and Egg Salad as a way to combine the best of my Easter left-overs and to welcome in Egg Salad Week, which is the week immediately following Easter every year.
