Whenever there was a grown-up birthday party at our house, my mother would make her own salads. And I was allowed to help her. If I remember correctly she would make either salmon or tuna salad, and an egg salad. Now, it would be nostalgic if I could tell you that this recipe for egg salad was my mothers. But it isn’t. Or maybe it is, but I don’t know for sure. Long story short, I came across this recipe in my cookbook from 1913. And it made me wonder why there is so much trash in store-bought egg salads. I know, it probably has something to do with shelf life. However, making your own egg salad is not so much work – do you start recognizing a theme throughout my recipes? – and it tastes so much better. This is just a basic version, so add whatever herbs and spices you like to spruce it up.
