Classic Egg Salad

Short on time, long on eggs? Follow our simple suggestions and try this tasty CLASSIC EGG SALAD.

This is one of my favourite go-to sandwich fillers. It’s easy-to-make, always delicious and in my find, the CLASSIC EGG SALAD recipe.

Here’s what it takes to make it!

Ingredients for Classic Egg Salad

We’re big fans of the simplicity of this sandwich filler recipe. Doesn’t take much to make it taste good.

Although some recipes call for the inclusion of finely chopped vegetables, but I try to say away from ones like onions or shallots. Instead, add celery and bell peppers for texture and a bit of sweetness. Remember, it’s essential to taste as much of that egg flavour as possible.

A hard-boiled egg on a slicer

My preferred method for cooking eggs “hard” is to steam them for 30 minutes in an electric vegetable steamer. Doing so produces surprisingly tender results. For this recipe, steamed or hard-boil eggs will do.

Creamy egg salad with mayonnaise

The creaminess of a CLASSIC EGG SALAD is important – it needs to hold its shape and not be too wet. Balancing the quantity of mayonnaise and chopped vegetables to the dryness of the cooked eggs is important, and I find this ratio works best: 1 egg to 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise.

Optional! The addition of curry powder changes the flavour profile of this sandwich filling. Look for a curry powder made with cumin, coriander, fenugreek seeds, ginger, mustard, cinnamon, cardamom and chili peppers. People always rave about how this one ingredient brightens the flavour.

This CLASSIC EGG SALAD is a delicious filler for sandwiches, and I always line up top-drawer accompaniments whenever I serve it. I suggest using fresh prepared grain and nut breads, buttery croissants or warm, toasted bagels. I also like to add cucumber, tomato and zucchini slices, plus fresh sprouts like alfalfa, radish or pea shoots. Whatever you choose, it will only increase the delicious flavour that this CLASSIC EGG SALAD affords.
