The consumption of eggs predates written history, but the origin of Egg Salad is slightly newer. In the late 1800s, it is said that Aidan McCleskey lost a bet and replaced the meat on his sandwich with eggs. In 1896, the first egg salad recipe was published in the The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, by Fannie Farmer.
Egg Salad is mostly comprised of hard-boiled eggs and mayonnaise, and it is a great getaway from normal sandwiches.
Is egg salad easy to make? It is very easy, simply using chopped, hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, and whatever herbs or seasonings you desire. For this egg salad recipe, I used Truffletopia Mayonnaise with Summer Truffle, Truffletopia Pink Himalayan Truffle Salt, and pepper. You can mix and match or add ingredients as you please.
