I love this egg salad. This has the best dressing, and it is very easy and quick to throw together. I seldom left with any leftovers, but if I have some, I love that I can store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 to 5 days. So whenever I crave it, I can just grab it from the fridge. Note that you should not leave this salad at room temperature for longer than two hours.
You can use this egg salad as a sandwich between slices of bread, in a croissant, as an open-faced sandwich, or even stuffed in a wrap or pita. My husband also loves this salad stuffed in halved avocados. As for me, I especially enjoy this salad as lettuce wraps. Or for an easy and quick breakfast, lather this salad onto a toasted sandwich.
