This is a cool summertime salad, great for cook-outs, family reunions, or parties. You can also make your own variations, by adding more, less, or different ingredients, seasonings, or seafood. This variation is a favorite of my family.

Instructions Checklist

  • Whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powder, oregano, turmeric and sugar in a large bowl. Mix in the bell pepper, celery and chopped eggs.

  • Add seafood and toss until evenly combined. Garnish with eggs slices and sprinkle with paprika.

  • Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or overnight before serving to let flavors blend.

To hard-cook eggs:

Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool in an ice bath, peel, and chop.

I am a seafood lover but this just didn't hit the spot... Seemed like it was a little bland; like it needed more of a sauce to add-or something special to the sauce to make it better. Read More
