Crunchy Veggie Deviled Eggs

The filling in this recipe reminds me of egg salad. You get a nice crunch and freshness from the celery and onion. The pepper adds a fabulous splash of color, very festive for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

I find that depending on how juicy the vegetables are, I occasionally need to modify the amount of mayo I add. Start with 3 tablespoons, adding another tablespoon at a time if needed. (Sorry I haven't taken the picture yet for this recipe!)

6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
3 to 4 tablespoons Light Mayonnaise or Salad Dressing
1 tablespoon sweet red pepper - very finely chopped
1 tablespoon green onion or scallions - finely chopped
1 tablespoon celery - very finely chopped
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
teaspoon salt
teaspoon ground black pepper
Paprika for garnish

Pop out (remove) the egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork. Add the mayonnaise, red pepper, onion, celery, mustard, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Fill the empty egg white shells with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with paprika.

Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to one day before serving.
