I love a good creamy egg salad, lots of mayonnaise dill pickle, mustard and soft white bread. Can I get a hell yeah?!? Somewhere along the line I ate a few too many egg salad sandwiches like that. Too good to stop apparently. I have found a way to enjoy egg salad again, no nasty fat free mayo or other disgusting fillers. Just good honest egg salad, lots of flavor and good for you.
