Egg Salad for Sandwiches and More

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

My daughter is the proclaimed egg salad extraordinaire of the family. I do all the work and she lets me know if it needs tweaking. I thought I would write down the recipe for safe keeping. This recipe is not overly creamy, add more or less mayo to your liking and +/- other ingredients accordingly. Cook & prep time does not include complete chilling before serving. I always use Kittencal's Technique for Perfect Easy-Peel Hard-Boiled Eggs for a perfect start!
