Egg Salad With Chutney and Almonds

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by TooAllergic

This is Lynne-Rossetto Kasper's recipe and she has described it as a sandwich to "eat-over-the-kitchen-sink". I love that description! Great as a vegetable dip or rolled in lettuce leaves (who needs bread?). The cooking time does not include boiling the eggs or chilling the salad.

This was so delicious! I will never make egg salad another way again.
