How to make Deviled Egg Pasta Salad
Not only is this pasta salad delicious and nutritious, it is also SERIOUSLY easy to throw together. Hereâ€™s how to do it at home in your kitchen:
Cook the Pasta
Cook your pasta according to package directions, rinsing and draining after it is cooked. Cool completely.
Prepare the Eggs
Peel the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks, placing the yolks in a large bowl and setting the whites aside.
Add the mayonnaise and greek yogurt to the bowl with the egg yolks, whisking to combine until smooth. Add in the salt, garlic powder and smoked paprika and whisk once again.
Stir in the pasta, red onion and green onion until thoroughly mixed. Chop up the egg whites and mix them in as well.
Go ahead and DEVOUR the pasta salad right away, or cover and refrigerate in the fridge a bit longer to let flavors develop.
How to store Pasta Salad
This deviled egg pasta salad recipe should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. It has quite a strong smell, so make sure you seal it off before storing it. I do not recommend freezing it as it will affect the texture of the veggies, pasta, and egg.
How long does Deviled Egg Pasta Salad last in the fridge?
Now that youâ€™ve stored your pasta salad with egg, make sure you donâ€™t leave it too long in the fridge! I recommend storing it for up to 3-5 days as it will last this long. It might not even last the full 5 days, though, because it is such a tasty lunch!
