Deviled Egg Salad

I needed a dish to go with our Hawaiian Burgers (click for link to recipe) and my children do not like salads with mayonnaise. I love classic macaroni and potato salads with mayo. So, the trick became how do I get my children to eat this. I go back to when they are little kids. They wouldn’t eat quesadillas but they would eat Mexican grilled cheese. I needed to change the name! They love Deviled Eggs and it became Deviled Egg Salad.


My kids love Deviled Egg Salad. Made the salad the same way I would make deviled eggs and just added macaroni to it. They both said how much they liked this salad. I tried not to laugh but it worked!
