Eggsalad sandOne of my favorite summer time pleasures is a simple egg salad sandwich. I like to keep it basic with a short list of ingredients, all of which are always in the refrigerator.  If you like yours crunchy and complicated, this recipe is a great base.

You will need:

8 Boiled and peeled eggs

Real Mayo

Brown Mustard

Dill Pickle Juice

Peel warm eggs and chop up. There is no need for a fine chop here. Warm yolks make the best egg salad because they become creamy when you mix with the Mayo. So, peel them as soon as you can stand to hold them.

Add about 1/3 cup of mayo, 2 squirts of brown mustard, a dash or two of dill pickle juice, salt, and pepper.
