My DH is a truck driver, so I look for recipes he can take in his little fridge with him & quickly make sammies out of. He LOVED this recipe Kitten! & he agreed that the olive really make it. "You're just eating along and it's another Egg salad sandwich, then you bite into an olive and WHAM! It's something special!" Thanx for another great one!
Our family has always made egg and olive salad, but it consisted of eyeballing a combo of eggs, olives, mayo and mustard. I was excited to try a formal recipe. I loved the addition of cream cheese to firm things up and the squeezing of the olives to further keep the salad firm. The celery and onions were nice, but I think the salad would be fine without them if you don't have any on hand. I kept the olives whole as suggested, but decided I prefer them sliced so they can be more equally distributed. Personal preferenece... I will be increasing the mustard.
As usual your recipes arE WONDERFUL. Can't go wrong with any of your recipes. Wonderful flavor Thanks for the recipes
Absolutely LOVE this egg salad.
OH YAH!! And I had already planned on using Mayo with Olive Oil. :) So like I said, this is perfect! (Sorry I'm just excited! LOL)
This was a really good quality egg salad sandwich that everyone enjoyed! Thanks again for all your delicious posts!
I love green olives & have always put them in egg salad. Adding the cream cheese and the other ingredients made this a wonderful egg salad. It was great to make a sandwich and not have the egg salad squish out of the bread. I used dry mustard instead of yellow. Everyone agreed this was the best.
Nice for something alittle dif than reg egg salad. I think next time I will double the olives tho.thanks P.S. I make alot of your stuff & get your updates on facebook.thank you for the time you spend:)
This is a very delicious and unique egg salad. I love the olives in it. I really enjoyed this on some nice fresh sourdough bread. Made for Favorites of 2009 Game tag....thanks to happynana for putting this in your Favorites cookbook!
I keep forgetting to review this even though I've made it a half dozen times. This is, far and away, the very best egg salad on the planet. Thanks, Kittencal.
