Egg salad is one of those things that I never got super excited about when my mom made it growing up, but now as an adult, I think it’s delicious! I am totally a fan of classic egg salad though. There are tons of variations, but for me none of them can compare to the traditional goodness, and this recipe really can’t be beat! If I’m splurging or serving to guests than I love to eat this salad on fresh croissants, but for a weekday lunch it tastes just amazing on some whole grain toast, open faced, with a little salt and pepper!
