AtV Favorite: Deviled Egg-less Salad

 Even though a majority of my diet is due to choice I still find myself missing certain flavors and textures that can be so difficult to "fake" without cooking. That is why I've decided to start a new type of post called AtV Favorite(s). AtV Favorite(s) will be dedicated to those recipes that hit the spot when I'm craving good old fashioned comfort food. It just doesn't get any better than that.
I'm seriously in love with the following recipe on SO many different levels, I can barely contain myself! When I was a kid I used to look forward to Thanksgiving for one main reason: my Mom's Deviled Eggs. They were magical. Even though it's been years since I've had a real Deviled Egg I still think of them and heave a sigh. Until yesterday I resolved that I'd most likely never find a substitute equal to that favorite childhood food... 
Until yesterday...

  2. Hey! I bet Curry wouldn't be bad at all with this. You could switch out the Paprika on top and use Curry instead! Genius!
