Lenore's Egg Salad

Lenore's Egg Salad
 I love egg salad.  I like a little crunch - celery, onion, shallot, fennel, pickles, all work for me.  And I like a little zip - in this case, I used my favorite Tony Packo's Sweet Hot Pickles and Peppers, including some of the juice from the jar, and Old Bay Seasoning.   (Tony Packo's is the Toledo restaurant that Klinger always waxed poetic about on the TV show M.A.S.H.)

Have you seen the hydroponic lettuce in the stores?  It's perfect for pulling off a few leaves at time for sandwiches, and since the roots are still attached, it holds for quite awhile in the fridge.  Perfect for smaller households.

Hydroponic Lettuce

 Lenore's Egg Salad 
6 eggs, hard boiled
6 T. mayo or salad dressing
1 stalk of celery, chopped fine
1 small shallot, chopped fine
6-7 Tony Packo's Sweet Hot Pickles & Peppers, chopped, plus a spoonful of juice from the jar
2 - 3 t. yellow mustard
Salt and Pepper
Old Bay Seasoning

Chop eggs, then add the rest of ingredients and stir to combine.  Taste and adjust seasonings.

  1. I love egg salad and this one has ingredients that I would never have thought about adding like the sweet hot pickles and peppers. Don't know if I can find that brand here but am sure I can find a similar one. I'm definitely going to try this.
