Egg salad | simply fast

Today I brought you a delicious egg salad. It can be prepared in a few minutes and is perfect for an Easter breakfast or brunch. Of course, it is also absolutely delicious as a topping on bread outside of Easter time. It is also ideal for using leftover hard-boiled eggs. We especially like sprinkling it with a little cress ... ♥

Homemade egg salad

This homemade egg salad recipe couldn't be easier. Quickly stir the sauce, add hard-boiled eggs, season to taste - done! You can vary the taste again and again. I have listed a selection of different options for modification under the basic ingredients.

Of course, you can also prepare your mayonnaise yourself. But then the eggs should be very fresh. I like to take the slightly reduced-fat and purchased version. Because the Easter season is usually rich enough. In addition, I can prepare the egg salad for breakfast or brunch the evening before with a clear conscience and park it in the refrigerator overnight.

Eggs as a symbol of Easter

Eggs are traditionally part of the Easter season. Why is that like that? As is well known, the egg is the symbol of life. The egg is also considered a symbol of the resurrection. As early as the 4th century AD, eggs were burial objects in Roman-Germanic graves.

The custom of giving away eggs at Easter goes back to different origins. During the fasting period before Easter, no eggs were consumed in addition to meat, milk, butter and cheese. Of course, the chickens were still busy laying their eggs during this time. So this “oversupply” had to be made sustainable somehow. So the eggs were boiled without further ado. Parts of plants were added to the boiling water for coloring. This made it easier to distinguish the boiled eggs from the raw eggs. At Easter these were then blessed and given away. By the way, red has been the traditional color for Easter eggs since the 13th century. Red is the color of life and joy as well as a symbol for the blood of Christ.

Egg hunt as a tradition

Nowadays there are many different techniques for decorating eggs. Originally with plant colors or with various ready-made colors from the drugstore.

By the way, searching for Easter eggs has only been a custom since the 19th century. This is of course very popular with the children, especially the colorfully wrapped chocolate eggs. These are traditionally brought by the Easter bunny and hidden on Easter morning. And how does the Easter Bunny get into Easter? Because of its fertility, the rabbit has been associated with the egg. The rabbit was also previously said to not sleep because it had no eyelids. That will give him enough time to distribute the Easter eggs early in the morning. Of course we know better. Nevertheless, I always find it interesting where our traditions and customs come from ...

Now I wish you and your loved ones a happy Easter, despite the Corona crisis. Stay healthy and have a few happy holidays ... ♥
