Curried Egg Salad



Egg salad is one of those dishes that is a breeze to whip up and extremely versatile.
In other words, it's a "back-pocket" recipe - one you can pull out at a moment's notice.

I may have eaten my weight in egg & cress sandwiches while pregnant and living abroad.  On every local tea room menu, I could find those lovely dense sandwiches with the layer of peppery cress...and I tried them all.

Mmmmm....

The thing with egg salad is it takes on the flavor of whatever is put with it.  I like bright classic English egg salad with that bite from the cress.  Then again, I like a traditional Southern egg salad that tastes a little more like deviled egg filling.  Moreover, I like smoked salmon and dill mixed in my egg salad.

Let's just assume, that I will eat any egg salad sandwich that you put in front of me...unless it has Marmite on it.  I cannot stomach Marmite.  Other than that, we're good.

You can go the ethnic route and flavor it with Mexican spices (eggs hold up really well to spicy flavors) or like I have done here and gone the Indian route.

As much as I like a good sandwich, egg salad does always look pretty in hollowed out tomatoes or lettuce cups.

  1. Yum! I love eggs, and I haven't seen or tried egg salad flavored this way before. My go-to egg dish is usually deviled eggs :)

    1. Thanks Ms. Joy! You could even blend this up to make it more of a whipped type egg salad. :)
