Since living here in Mexico City, I've developed a craving for egg salad. Maybe it has something to do with the mayonnaise here containing lime juice or just the altitude? I don't know but it's been on my lunch menu several times a week for months now. I haven't always like egg salad. You can ask my mom, I stuffed an egg salad sandwich between the cushions in the backseat of our car when I was a kid. In an Oklahoma summer, it was a stinky situation that I'm frequently reminded of.
The recipe is s.i.m.p.l.e. I've added a few extras depending on whether or not I feel like having a little kick to my sandwich. So, here is my recipe.....(it's not precise by any means)
4 boiled eggs, diced
regular yellow mustard to taste
mayonnaise to taste
little squeeze of lime juice
a dash of smoked paprika
If you're feeling like a little kick, add some Cholula (a hot sauce that you can find in any grocery store)
You could roll this stuff in a tortilla or put it in a pita pocket. I like to put my egg salad on whole wheat toast and sometimes I just eat it with a spoon right out of the bowl. I know, it's kind of like drinking from the milk carton and putting back in the frig. Gross.
Now that I think about it, it's similar to eating a deviled egg on a piece of bread. Ha, I usually only eat the yolk mixture in the deviled eggs.
Till next time,
