We love egg salad. It is so easy to make and so good for sandwiches or to serve on a bed of lettuce with crackers. Egg salad makes for a quick sandwich anytime hunger strikes. I love having it in the fridge because I love it with crackers for a snack during the day. Take it to any gathering as a spread and it won’t last long. My family loves this recipe and I make it often. I always have eggs on hand and this is my handy go to recipe when I need something in a hurry. It keeps well in the refrigerator and you can double or even triple the recipe for a crowd.
Egg Salad Simple Ingredients Needed:
Many people love sweet or dill relish in their egg salad and that is always delicious too, however this recipe is our favorite. I love to eat it on Ritz crackers, such a great combination. I usually double this recipe because it never last long.
I recently remade this to take photos to update this recipe. I bought a big loaf of French bread from the store and oh my.. it was so good!
