Where there's Easter, there are eggs, right? If you find yourself with a refrigerator overflowing with hard-boiled eggs — pastel-colored or otherwise — ahead of Sunday's holiday and don’t know what to do with them all, look no further than an easy-to-prep egg salad.

Instead of turning out a goopy, light-yellow mixture, this good-for-you recipe for Chunky Egg Salad (pictured above) promises next-level results with light, fresh flavors. The key to this recipe is slicing the eggs coarsely; instead of mashing them or finely dicing them, simply slice the hard-boiled eggs into sixths so the whites and yolks are still visible. When it comes to the dressing, keep it simple and classic with a cool, creamy combination of mayonnaise and whole-grain mustard. Fragrant dill adds a welcome bite of freshness, while crunchy celery delivers the texture you crave. To make the salad into a satisfying meal, serve it in sandwiches or feature it in a salad.
