Egg Salad Sammies
8 hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1Tbs. Dijon mustard
1 Tbs. chopped fresh chives
1/4 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
8 thin slices of sourdough bread, toasted if desired
8 small better lettuce leaves
The egg salads tastes better if it sits for a while before serving so, if possible, make it a few hours ahead of time and refrigerate it. Slice the eggs into a bowl. Then, using 2 table knives, scissor-cut them into smaller pieces. Add the mayo, mustard, chives, celery, salt and a few grinds of pepper and mix to combine evenly.
To make each sandwich, top a slice of bread with about 1/4 of the egg salad and then with 2 lettuce leaves. Top with a second slice of bread and press down gently. Cut in half to serve. Makes 4 sandwiches.
And then we need a delicious drink to go with our sandwiches.
2 quarts prepared limeade
2 cups cranberry juice
2 limes, thinly sliced
Ice cubes for serving
Combine the limeade, cranberry juice and lime slices until blended. I ladled mine into eight 1 1/2 cup Mason jars with screw caps. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. You may also store it in frig and then pour over ice in tall glasses.
