Egg Salad

Egg Salad

Egg salad is delicious either as a salad or made into a sandwich. Here I'll give you a recipe that you can start with, along with suggestions you can try when developing your own personalized recipe.

You start with hard boiled eggs, and you can follow the link if you want to see how I do it. Even if you've already been cooking for a while, you still might want to check out the method I recommend, because it's relatively fool-proof, giving consistent results over time.

You will also see some tips for peeling the hard boiled eggs; a chore that's driven me crazy more than once.

Here's the recipe for Egg Salad for two salads or two sandwiches:

3 hard boiled eggs
3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon chopped dried or fresh parsley
salt and pepper
paprika for garnish

Peel and chop the eggs, and mix with the other ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste.

Modifications you can try include Tabasco, cayenne pepper, chopped green olives, chopped black olives, chopped pepperoncini peppers, capers, bacon bits, and so forth. You've got the idea. Almost anything (but not all at once) is good with eggs.

To make a sandwich, I just spread some mayo on bread and add the egg salad and lettuce. Some folks also add tomato. Here again, I encourage you to develop your own favorites.
