Egg salad

Egg salad

Egg salad is part of an Anglo-American tradition of salads involving a high-protein or high-carbohydrate food mixed with seasonings in the form of spices, herbs, and other foods, and bound with an oil-based dressing. Its siblings include tuna salad, chicken salad, potato salad, ham salad, pasta salad, lobster salad, crab meat salad, etc.

Egg salad is often used as a sandwich spread, typically made of chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, minced celery, salt, pepper and paprika.

Egg salad can be made creatively with any number of other cold foods added. Tomatoes, onions, lettuce, pickles, pickle relish and cucumber are common ingredients. Other variations can include cooked lentils, peas, beans, olives, peppers, or cottage cheese.
