This recipe is egg salad sandwiches! These sandwiches have been around nearly forever. Many of you may not have had an egg salad sandwich in years. Well, it’s time to change that! The secret to that perfect egg salad sandwich is getting the mustard/mayo ratio just right. Some people like more mayo some don’t. I would suggest slowly adding the mayo and mustard to fit your tastes. You can either use yellow mustard or Dijon mustard. For condiments, a crisp piece of lettuce tops the sandwich off nicely. This recipe is great for lunches and picnics.
