Egg Salad Sandwich

This egg salad sandwich was always a favorite of mine growing up! I made it so simply with just a few ingredients for my sample palate back then. Now that I’m older and wiser there are a few addition ingredients I love in my egg salad sandwich.

This egg salad sandwich post is in collaboration with Redmonds RealSalt. All opinions about the product are our own.

Post-Easter hard boiled egg frenzy is not the only time I like to make egg salad. I often will just make egg salad and eat it without the bread, maybe with a few crackers or by itself. It’s a healthy lean filling salad.

Some people like to add raw onion, or chives to their egg salad. The flavor balance in egg salad sandwiches are too delicate to add straight raw onion. It will overpower all the other flavors of this delicious salad. Redmonds RealSalt’s Onion Salt and Garlic salt are the perfect ingredients to give the salad the depth it needs without the flavors being over powering. Redmonds Real Salt is our very favorite salt- all of them! I don’t cook anything without them. seriously.

The celery and dill add sophistication to the salad that adults love! it’s ok to leave out the celery (ok maybe even the dill) for children. Like mentioned before their palates are simpler, we have to teach them slowly and surely :)

Serve over a crusty, rustic bread or on crackers as an appetizer. Or serve in a lettuce wrap! There are so many ways to eat this egg salad sandwich. As I mentioned earlier- I’m not above eating straight out of the bowl it’s that tasty! If you make this egg salad sandwich, come back and leave us a comment!
