Curried Egg Salad Sandwich

The whole wheat bread that I made a couple days ago just screams for curried egg salad. So does my family. This is one of their favorite sandwiches.


Chop some celery into small cubes.


Add some thinly sliced onion.


Add about 3-4 tablespoons of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of cracked black pepper.


I boiled 23 eggs for this recipe. I chop them using an egg slicer. Slice them one way and then turn them and slice them again. I made enough for my kids to take some home so feel free to cut this recipe in half.


After peeling the eggs, I put them in a bowl of water to make sure I get all of the pieces of shell off of them. Let them dry on a paper towel before slicing.


Using the egg slicer gives you very uniform pieces.

Add about 3/4 cup of mayo and 3 tablespoons of yogurt. This salad should be rather dry so add the wet ingredients sparingly until you have the right consistency. Mix very well. This is best made a day in advance so the flavors can blend.


I slice a piece of the whole wheat bread and top it with arugula.


Then I pile on the egg salad.


I top it with spring lettuce mix.


Then top it with another piece of bread, Putting the lettuce on the top and bottom keeps the sandwich from getting soggy.


This takes egg salad to a whole new level.

This is the BEST egg salad in the world. I just e-mailed this to a friend of mine in Florida who ask me for an egg salad recipe.

Keep cooking slave women!

It´s too long since I had any kind of egg salad! Love it but it´s summer food to me. I love curry too so it must become fantastic mixing those two :-)

Have a great day now!

With all the eggs I've been getting lately I should make some egg salad.

I just pickled a load of them. The hubby loves pickled eggs...

So how many goose eggs would that be? This looks like a good way to use up those eggs that I'm getting right now.

I love egg salad but have never added curry. This should be a great addition. Thanks for all of these wonderful recipes you post.
