Let me ask you a question... what is more American than egg salad?

Here’s a simple egg salad that’s sure to please. It’s easy to assemble, and if you have a chance to allow it to sit for a few hours (or overnight), the flavors will taste even better.

I made mine with some sweet relish (optional), and it really kicked it up.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

Chef’s Note: I apologize for the lack of step-by-step photos. I was making this dish for a lady’s group Sunday brunch. I did, however, manage to get the finished result… Anyway, it came out so yummy that I just had to post it.

Chef’s Note: To bake the garlic, wrap it in parchment paper with a bit of olive oil, and place into a 325f (160c) oven, for fifteen minutes, remove, and allow to cool.
5
Chop the hard-boiled eggs, chunky style.

Chef’s Tip: You might want to remove the shells from the eggs before chopping. That is unless you like crunchy egg salad.

Add all the ingredients, except the eggs in a large bowl, and mix thoroughly.
8
Add the chopped eggs.

Gently toss until the eggs are completely coated.
