Last month when I was working on a different kind of egg salad recipe, it got me thinking about how much I love a good classic egg salad sandwich. Ever since then I had it stuck in my head to make one, and since I had leftover hard boiled eggs today seemed like the perfect opportunity to enjoy one for lunch.

I think egg salad is one of those dishes that you either love or hate. For me personally I happen to love them, if they are made well. I like a lot of crunchy crispy bits in mine and lighter on the mayo. I keep the dressing fairly traditional to maintain that classic egg salad flavor.

I would love to know, are you an egg salad lover and if so what do you enjoy in yours?

Begin by finely chopping the red onion and chives. Add them to a medium sized bowl, followed by 6 hard boiled eggs. I like to roughy chop the eggs in various sizes for a little extra texture.

To the same bowl add in the Mayo, mustard, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste.

Using a fork mix everything until evenly combined.

Enjoy the egg salad on a nice toasted piece of bread garnished with some leafy green lettuce.

I like to top the sandwiches with a few extra slices of red onion. Enjoy!
