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.

Cranberry Limeade


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.

Good Eating!
