Recipe – Not Just Your Regular Egg Salad

Now that Easter has come and gone, what can we do, just what can we do, with all those hard boiled eggs? I say let’s make a lot of delicious egg salad!
Anna Loutsos

2½ dozen hard boiled eggs, cleaned, roughly chopped and chilled
2 shallots finely chopped
6 celery stalks finely chopped
1½ cups sliced black olives
¼ c. pickle relish
1½ c. mayonnaise
¼c. Dijon mustard
¼ c. sour cream
1 tsp. celery seed
Salt and pepper to taste
Some nice leaves of butter lettuce or lettuce of your choice

In a large mixing bowl add all your ingredients and mix gently but thoroughly, cover and chill, so that the flavors can meld. Slice your croissant, place a nice piece of lettuce, add a good scoop of egg salad, place sandwich on serving dish, and add a couple pieces of fruit along side if you like; now all you have to do is enjoy. The next two weeks you will have the recipes for chicken salad, and then tuna salad. On the week of the tuna salad recipe you will have all three recipes, just in time for Mother’s Day! I’ll tell you what to do then for all the wonderful mothers in your life.
