Watercress-Horseradish Deviled Eggs
Fresh and so springlike, watercress brings bright flavor while horseradish adds bite to cut the richness of the yolk.

- 8 large eggs
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
- 3/4 cup finely chopped watercress, plus leaves for garnish
- 2 teaspoons drained prepared horseradish
In a medium saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12 minutes. Drain eggs; run under cold water until cool enough to handle.
Peel and halve eggs lengthwise; remove yolks and transfer to a bowl. Mash with a fork; mix in mayonnaise, mustard, and vinegar. Press through a sieve to make smooth. Stir chopped watercress and horseradish into yolk mixture.
Using a pastry bag fitted with desired tip (we used plain and star tips), pipe yolk mixture into whites. Garnish with watercress leaves. Serve immediately, or chill up to 2 hours.
