I'm always looking for recipes that sound something like what my grandma would've made. She was a wonderful cook and even the most average lunch or dinner seemed great. She made an egg salad that I haven't figured out yet. We made sandwiches with it. I found in my "300 Ways to Serve Eggs" circa 1949 a way to make Egg and ham salad that sounds interesting.
If you are going to make a white bean & tuna salad (which, if you've never had it, might not sound good, but is) with canned goods, this is a good recipe. This is from a book called _Culinary Journey to the Mediterranean. You can serve this with pita bread or pita chips, and/or on a bed of arugula or watercress.
Most requested quick fix lunch for the working stiffs in our home. Searched and searched for something similar (#109698 came close). Try this! Splendidly simple and surprisingly delicious. Although I always "eyeball" measurments - I think this is pretty close.
I have accepted an egg salad cook off challenge, and am delighted to submit my entry here, because it is a winner. Developed in my own kitchen with no assistance from outside sources, other than internal verbal encouragement. Lip-Smacks and loud Cheers of YUM YUM could be heard throughout the house; every great chef strives to hear YUM YUM. Warning: Please do not attempt to express an opinion, with your mouth full of egg salad; it is off-putting, and not a pretty sight.
Here's an easy, tasty lunch for brown-baggers, both children and adults. I made the salad and prepared the carrots the night before and it was a breeze to assemble the next morning. You can dip a cut end of each roll into black sesame seeds if you wish.
Great egg salad with a little something extra. Delicious for regular sandwiches and also finger sandwiches, or on large sturdy crackers (like the Swedish rye crisps). This recipe would be delicious using a great Southern U.S. ham.
