Egg Salad

Egg Salad 

Every now and then, a random dish will float through my mind and it stays there. Nothing will do until I make it and satisfy the craving. The other day when I had egg salad on the brain, I knew better than to resist. I love egg salad but for some reason, I haven’t made it in months. I don’t know why … it is delicious, simple to make and a nice cold dish to serve at lunch on a hot, steamy day. The secret ingredient in my dish is a tablespoon of Durkee’s sauce. It is found in the condiment aisle of the supermarket and has a noticeable turquoise cap. In essence, it is a blend of mustard and mayonnaise but it keeps the egg salad from assaulting your tastebuds. Remember, egg salad is the ultimate mellow yellow! A worthy substitute is honey mustard. By the way, an egg slicer makes preparation so fast. You can have it done and in the fridge to meld in 10 minutes.
