Hit your deli up for the boiled eggs to make this more of an assembly-only dish that doubles as a no-cook dinner or portable lunch. In this version of the classic salad, we’ve piled on the veggies and call for an effortless homemade dressing that uses ingredients you most likely already have in your refrigerator. We’ve left out the horseradish for a less spicy dressing but if you want a little more kick stir some in to suit your personal taste. For a chunkier, tangier Russian dressing, substitute salsa for the ketchup. Serve with crispy, whole grain crackers to round out the meal.
