The Technique

Egg Salad

Classic Egg Salad is an old-fashioned recipe however it does have it’s place in the modern kitchen. It may be served over homemade bread slices, crostini toasts topped with salmon, dill & creme fraiche or crackers. Eggs are economical & provide valuable nutrition including being an excellent source of protein. The shelf life extends for a period of approximately 5 weeks so they may be used for cakes, dredging chicken & okra or for a satisfying small batch of egg salad. Look to The Basics: How To Boil Eggs for pointers on making them properly. Learn how to prepare this Southern icon in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Egg Salad

Classic Egg Salad is a versatile lunch or dinner mealtime option that may be used for sandwiches or salads. Whole Wheat Pain de Mie & Farmhouse White Bread are great staring points for sandwiches. The addition of green leaf lettuce & a few slices of crisp bacon make it a bit more interesting or consider using it in place of the Peanut Hummus when preparing The New BLT.
