Egg Salad Sandwiches With Fresh Dill

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by threeovens

This egg salad uses twice the amount of yellow yolk as you would normally make. This is how it is done at E.A.T. (Restaurant), Manhattan. The surplus egg whites and be chopped, or pressed through a sieve for a garnish for soup, salad, rice, or whatever.

I had leftover yolks, and this was the perfect recipe for them. The simple flavors blend well together, and the egg salad itself is beautifully creamy. Great recipe, thanks for posting!
