Too Many Easter Eggs?

I got a little coloring happy this past weekend. So what ... I only made 3 dozen hard boiled eggs. Now I gots to eat all those friggin things! I'm a big fan of a hard boiled egg ... but there is only so many I can eat with some salt slapped on it. The gas alone can kill you! I'm trying to mix it up a bit and make something different than the plain ol' egg. I made some kick ass egg salad today. Kind of strange though because the food coloring stains the egg whites, so I had a "festive" egg salad. Here is a simple recipe that I use.

4 Hard-boiled Eggs, peeled and chopped
¼ cup Light Mayonnaise
1 Celery Stalk (no ends or leaves), finely chopped
2 teaspoons Red or Sweet White Onion, finely chopped
1 ½ teaspoons Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed if possible)
To taste: Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper (about 1/8 to 1/4 tsp of each)

Gently toss the eggs and celery together in a medium-size bowl.

In a smaller bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, onion, salt and pepper. Fold into the eggs and celery. Season to taste with salt & the ground black pepper.

Chill for an hour or so before eating. For each individual serving, spoon 1/2 cup onto a lettuce leaf or spread on bread.

I did modify this a little. I don't particularly care for the lemon juice ... so I bypass that. Also, I hate raw onion, so I swapped that crap out for a little onion powder instead. Anyways, if you need a quick little recipe for egg salad, there ya go.
