Old Fashioned Egg Salad Recipe

This recipe takes the basic egg salad recipe up a few notches.  There is mayonnaise, mustard, green onion, paprika and salt and pepper mixed together into perfection.

One of the memories I have of my grandmother is her packing lunch for our annual road trip to the Jersey shore.  We would rent a house big enough to accommodate our whole family and spend the week in Ocean City, New Jersey.

My grandmother would fill her big blue cooler with sandwiches wrapped in waxed paper, assorted fruits and a big batch of her famous brownies.  Nestled next to the cooler in the trunk of the car would be her plaid drink cooler filled with iced tea.

Every summer would be the same.  We’d stop at a rest area along the way, unpack the cooler and eat at a picnic table somewhere between Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  It was a lot like the scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation (minus the dog mishap).

There would always be a variety of sandwiches – one of which was egg salad.  As a kid it was not my favorite.  I would always go for the balony and cheese but as an adult…it would have been my first choice!

I still think of my grandmother every time I make egg salad.  It’s one of those recipes that reminds me of her and makes me smile.  We still go to the Jersey Shore every year for vacation.

Every time we pass a rest area along the way, I think of those childhood trips.  The memories are priceless.

A Basic Egg Salad Recipe
