Sriracha Egg Salad

 Sriracha brings egg salad to a whole new level of deliciousness. Try this simple recipe and enjoy!

 

Recently I discovered Sriracha sauce.

My daughter told me she uses it in many of her dishes that she makes now that she’s out on her own. My friend Maria said the same thing. She told me she uses Sriracha in many of her recipes.

I didn’t know what I was missing until I cooked with this amazing ingredient the first time. This wonder sauce gives a great depth of flavor to anything you put it in or on.

My husband who usually does not like anything too spicy and neither do I for that matter really didn’t notice the hot or spiciness to the recipe when added. We did however thought the dish had a depth of flavor that it didn’t have before. 

Sriracha just adds such great flavor to any dish. A little sweet and tangy and just perfect.

If you haven’t used this sauce before, go pick it up and try it soon. You will know what I’m talking about once you have it in a dish for the first time.

You wouldn’t think Sriracha would taste good on eggs especially prepared egg salad but oh boy! It sure does. Totally delectable. The whole family loves egg salad this way now.
