“I've tried many variations of egg salad sandwiches over the years but I always return to my basic recipe as follows. Important to use the best ingredients. Try my posted Mayo' recipe. Egg salad sandwich made with store bought mayonnaise is really good but egg salad sandwich made with homemade mayonnaise is worthy of exaltation! I only add dill occasionally and *only* if it's fresh from our herb garden. *Warning*: contains raw egg. --Tasty-- does like a few black olives (chopped) stirred into her egg salad sandwich. I begrudgingly comply...;) Nothin' like indulging the little darlin'!”
2 sandwiches
