A simple and succulent delicacy, typical of New York Delis.
It can be used as a sandwich filling, as a topping for crackers, rice cakes, or even with greens.
It must not be dry or liquid. It should only be used on the day it is made.
You can use this Egg Salad in a delicious egg sandwich, also shown by chef Andrea Kaufmann here on CREME.
Do you prefer to use homemade mayo instead? No problem, the chef also shows you how to do it on CREME. It's easy and delicious.
