Today I am sharing a Classic Egg Salad Recipe like grandma used to make. This homestyle chicken salad recipe is made easily and tastes delicious. It is also a very inexpensive meal idea for times when you want a cheap meal idea!
Hello Friends! I hope you had a marvelous Easter weekend! We did a little traveling and enjoyed connecting with family. Our family was in three different states this year, but thanks to phone technology we were able to enjoy each other from afar. We were able to see a concert this weekend and enjoyed more chocolate covered eggs than I probably should have.
This recipe is perfect as a way to use leftover hardboiled eggs that you may have leftover. I grew up in a family where we did not waste when possible, so you may want to keep it for those times when you need to use up eggs.
This easy egg salad recipe makes a nice salad, side dish or lunch idea. If you are wondering, How do you make an egg salad sandwich?
The answer is easy! just put some of the salad in between two pieces of bread or enjoy on crackers too!
You can make it as a great take-along lunch idea too! I recommend packaging the salad and the bread separately until ready to eat. These are great for picnics and barbecue gatherings.
