Halloween is one of the best times of the year. Who doesn’t love dressing up in silly costumes and gorging on candy just like when we were kids? I know I love Halloween, but I hate the thought of killing my healthy eating streak with so many tempting seasonal foods. Deviled eggs are a great party treat, or a snack between friends. I gave this recipe a spooky Halloween spin to satisfy everyone’s holiday cravings.

You’ll need:

4 hardboiled eggs, peeled and halved lengthwise
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 ½ tablespoons mayonnaise
2 whole black olives, sliced
Sriracha (for decoration)
Paprika to taste
