Recipes: Fourmilab Can't Fail Paleo Egg Salad

You don't need to give up egg salad when you go paleo! Yes, you'll have to forgo the sandwich, but the best part is the yummy filling, not the bread, so prepare to feast upon the unalloyed core, which is totally paleo. Here's what you need:

Ingredient Quantity
Hard boiled eggs 4
Omega 3 Mayonnaise 4 Tbsp
Chopped green onion 2 Tbsp
Dijon mustard 1 tsp
Cayenne pepper 1/8 tsp

As a fervent believer in division of labour, I buy “pique-nique” eggs already hard boiled. These often run to the small side, and if they're seriously dinky, you might want to use five instead of four. If you prefer to boil your own eggs, here are foolproof instructions.

Peel the hard boiled eggs and throw them and the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and mash and stir until they're well mixed.

If you can't handle the heat, dispense with the cayenne pepper; if you're a hothead (like me) go wild with it. If you can't get green onions, or you prefer a crunchier onion experience, use chopped hard yellow onion instead.

This is best if you make it up, put it in the frigo, and serve it the next day, stirring it immediately before bringing it to the table. This makes about two servings, or one if it's your one meal a day.
