I made these for 'zaar tag, but I have to sheepishly admit that I made several changes. I used red onion rather than scallions, mostly red pepper and a little green (not yellow), and I had to leave out the parsley because I didn't have any. Oh, and I used white bread too. But, volume-wise, I think I used the same amount of veggies for the mix as the recipe called for. That said, I found that the mixture was very sloppy. I suggest leaving the crusts on the bread, or even better, using hamburger buns or maybe pita bread. I liked these sandwiches though, messy as they were! A nice alternative to the usual egg salad sandwich, and great to make if you don't have any meat or cheese on hand, but plenty of salad veg. Thanks Ellie, for sharing the recipe! Oh, and best of all, my kids really liked the mixture.
