Prep Time: 15 mins, Stand Time: 15 mins, Total Time: 30 mins

Servings: 9


6 eggs

2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

1 shallot, finely chopped (2 Tbsp.)

1 tablespoon capers, drained

1/3 cup full fat plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided



Place eggs in a single layer in a medium saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 15 minutes; drain. Place eggs in ice water until cool enough to handle; drain.

To peel eggs, gently tap each egg on the countertop. Roll egg on countertop under the palm of your hand. Peel off eggshell, starting at the large end.

Using the large holes of a box grater, shred eggs into a medium bowl. Use a fork to coarsely mash the eggs.

Stir in relish, shallot, and capers. Add Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, hot pepper sauce, salt, and pepper. Fold in until combined. Fold in 1 Tbsp. chives. Top with remaining 1 Tbsp. chives and paprika. Serve with vegetable crudités and/or crackers.
