Classic Egg Salad

Classic egg salad, everyone's favorite sandwiches, piled high on homemade rye bread and given a generous application of cracked black pepper. Mmm. Classic!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 Hard Boiled Eggs
  • ¼ Cup Mayo or Vegenaise
  • 1 Celery Rib, Diced Fine
  • 3 TBS. Red Onion, Diced Fine
  • 1 TBS. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 TBS. Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Pepper to Taste

Instructions

Boil your eggs gently for 12:00 to 15:00 minutes.

When cool enough to handle, peel your eggs and add them to your mixing bowl. If you find some or all of your eggs difficult to peal, crack the shells and submerge in cool water for peeling. During the peeling process water works its way under the shell membrane making it easier to peel your eggs. You’ll find you’re able to easily remove pieces of shell still attached to the membrane.

Now, dice your boiled eggs, I enjoy a fine dice and actually create the consistency you see in the above photo with the tines of a fork.

Fine dice a single stalk of fresh celery and add it to your eggs.

Add three tablespoons of fine-diced onions.

Now add a scant quarter cup of mayo.

And a teaspoon of Dijon mustard.

Add the juice of half a lemon.

And a healthy dose of fresh ground pepper. Combined and season to taste with salt. Classic. Enjoy!

Mouth-watering classic egg salad are everyone’s favorite sandwiches, piled high on homemade rye bread and given a generous application of cracked black pepper.

Classic egg salad, who doesn’t love it or eggs?  I love eggs, scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, baked in popovers, quiches and cakes. I can’t get enough and when I’m not eating whole eggs for breakfast or dinner, I’m eating egg white omelets stuffed with fresh herbs and tomatoes for breakfast or dinner.

One of my favorite sandwiches is the egg salad sandwich. The recipe below produces a classic egg salad perfect for salad or sandwiches. I don’t know where we ran across this recipe originally, if you search the web for egg salad recipes you will find many similar to this one.

After making your salad pile it high on homemade rye bread and give it a generous application of cracked black pepper. Mmm.

We love it and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.  Enjoy.
