I really like egg salad sandwiches. It was the first sandwich "filling" I learned how to make. I've tried many recipes, this is one of my favorites! Update -- YIKES! I completely forgot to add an ingredient! Corrected recipe to add 2 Tablespoons minced green onion.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place eggs,celery and green onion in a mixing bowl. In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  2. Pour mayonnaise mixture over eggs and celery and toss gently to combine.
  3. Place about 1/2 cup on each of four slices of bread and top with remaining four slices of bread.
  4. Tips: if desired, add a lettuce leaf to each sandwich. Also, for added flavor, add one jar (2 ounces) pimiento, drained or 2 tablespoons chopped, drained roasted red pepper to the egg salad; prepare as directed. Also great with a slice of cheese.

I basically use this recipe for the mustard & mayo ratio. It has always been hard for me to find the right ratio & this one hits it! I use Earth Balance mindful mayo or kraft mayo w/ olive oil & both taste great.

This has all the components that we have come to love and devour on the farm! We loved/love the crunch of celery, so instead of making this finely chopped, I left it as a big crunch (chopped) and it was truly delicious! I also love the use of yellow mustard and the cider vinegar just a refreshing snap. Instead of the 1/3 cup of low-fat mayo, I used full fat, but reduced to amount to 3 tablespoons and it was perfect. Thanks for posting such a delicious sammy!
