When it’s HOT outside (and inside) you don’t want to be spending a lot of time cooking. Here is an easy meal idea to beat the heat.

Ingredients (many are optional – your choice)

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest plus 2 tsp. fresh juice
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 8 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
  • 2 small stalks celery, finely diced (about 1/2 cup)4 chopped green onions (about 1/3 cup)
  • Your choice of bread


  • Whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, dill, lemon zest and juice, salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, and hot sauce in a bowl. Coarsely crumble hard-cooked eggs into mayonnaise mixture; gently fold together using a spatula to coat. Fold in celery and scallions. Taste salad, and adjust seasonings. Refrigerate, tightly covered, until chilled, at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours.
  • Stir salad. Taste, and adjust seasonings before serving. Store, covered, in refrigerator up to 3 days.
