Happy Easter With Fruity Nutty Egg Salad

May all the joys of this glorious season Be yours. Happy Easter!
Easter means lots of calorie going in and if you want your Easter to be healthy yet delicious then try this fruity nutty egg salad. I have used red spinach in this recipe you can use regular spinach if red is not available to you.But you can look for it in the farmers market as spring is the best time for this. Red spinach has sweet green flavor and delicate texture.It is very low in calories,good source of vitamin C, vitamin A,plus iron and other essential minerals.Red spinach paired well with egg, bacon,spring vegetable nuts and fresh cheese.In this recipe I use all that go well with red spinach and use the flavor of garlic which mingle very well with red spinach. Simple yet appetizing salad. A great celebration dish if well presented can make your Easter dinning a shinning and happy experience.
