Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • Egg salad tastes great served on whole wheat bread or pita bread, topped with lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
  • Increase the nutritional content by adding more vegetables to the salad. Try adding finely grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli or red bell peppers, or any of your familys favorites.
  • Try adding different seasonings to this salad for something different. For example, mix 1/2 teaspoon curry powder and 1 tablespoon white raisins for an Indian-inspired salad.
