What can be added to egg salad?
Basic egg salad is made of chopped eggs, mayonnaise and a dash of salt and pepper. If you want to try something a little different and dress up your sandwich a bit, try adding a few other ingredients to the mix.
Eat Your Veggies
Finely chopped bell peppers, onions, celery or carrots add garden-fresh taste and a satisfying crunch to your sandwich. If you don't have time to chop fresh vegetables, add 1 tsp. dried minced onion or celery seed.
Try Some Meat
Give your egg salad a protein boost by adding shredded chicken, chopped ham or flaked tuna to the recipe.
Hold It Together
There's nothing wrong with egg salad on white bread, but it's tasty on a croissant, a bagel or on toasted rye. Not in the mood for a sandwich? Serve the salad on a lettuce leaf instead.
The Finishing Touch
Embellish your egg salad sandwich by adding lettuce, sliced tomato or a slice or two of your favorite cheese.
