I think of my Grandma every time I eat or make egg salad. My gma, who pretty much made everything delicious (she was an amazing cook) always made egg salad sandwiches for road trips.
There were many random parks or rest stops on various interstates I remember eating an egg salad sandwich. It was what we did.
I love egg salad sandwiches, but I didn't always make it. For years, I only had egg salad when grandma or my mom made it. Weak sauce, I know. It's so quick and easy I'm not sure why I didn't.
Luckily there was one summer when I was in college where I went to live with my older sister. She was playing professional soccer and I thought it would be fun to spend the summer with her.
We had a blast that summer, and we made many memories. That summer is when I started to make egg salad sandwiches. That summer my sister and I ate a lot of egg salad sandwiches and Double Dippers (aka chocolate covered peanuts). I think that could be declared the summer of egg salad sandwiches and double dippers.
That summer with my sister we usually enjoyed our egg salad sandwich on warm toasted bread. Which is delicious. However, I don't eat as much bread these days. Now, I enjoy egg salad on crisp lettuce leafs. It's also delicious and I'd say pretty much amazing. Plus, it's healthy, full of protein, and few carbs.
Bonus, you can use up any leftover hard boiled eggs you may have from Easter.
