Mediterranean Deviled Eggs

April 15, 2014

Deviled eggs are an Easter classic.  This version is inspired by the ingredients of the Mediterranean.  The recipe transforms the meager deviled egg into something a little more gourmet with the addition of fresh chopped parsley and Kalamata olives.  Each bite is bursting with flavor.
