Simple and delicious! I used an oat and bran bread and chose not to toast it as a personal preference, otherwise made as written with the exception of skipping the extra mayo on the bread before assembling. It's a wonderful take on an egg salad sandwich with a delicious combination of flavors that compliment each other well. Thank you for sharing this keeper! :)
