Egg Salad

egg salad 1

Earlier this summer I had some incredible egg salad on toast, topped with chilled asparagus, during a full tea service at The Flour Box Tea Room & Cafe.  It had such a light and fluffy texture, unlike any that I had ever eaten before.

I have to admit that I am not typically someone that goes out of their way to eat or even make egg salad regularly. But after finding this great recipe for egg salad from The Diary of a Real Housewife. I tweaked a few things for my own tastes this is definitely something I’ll be making more often!

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Boil your eggs. Place all of the eggs in a pot, fill it about halfway with cold water. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to low and allow to cook for about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the hot water. Next place the eggs into a bowl with ice water and allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Once your eggs have cooled, it is time to peel them. Then place the peeled eggs in a mixing bowl. I prefer to use a potato masher to mash my eggs but you can also use a fork to mix and mash them.
  4. Add the seasonings, mayo, mustard, and whipped cream cheese. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Allow the egg salad to chill for several minutes or serve immediately with bread of your choice.
  6. This step is optional, if you’d like the chilled asparagus tips for garnishing. Boil asparagus tips for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to chill in the refrigerator. Cut the asparagus tips to the length of your bread and place on top of the egg salad.

Summer is finally coming to an end but the temps here in the south are still quite warm. What better way to cool off a little bit in this heat, than with a vegetable platter! Veggie sticks, crackers, and french bread are perfect for dipping in your favorite hummus or spread. You can include some fruit in for good measure too. Platters like this are perfect for a large crowd or you can make them on a smaller scale if you’re just snacking by yourself.

One of the first recipes I found when I was interested in starting a food blog this past summer, was Singapore Noodles from Crazy Vegan Kitchen. Amrita has a ton of wonderful vegan recipes on her website.

I am not a vegan so I chose to add meat to mine. I’ve made it with beef and with chicken. I’ve also omitted and added somethings to my own liking. If you’d like to see the original recipe, which is amazing, it is located here.
