I remember exactly where I was when I wrote this recipe. I was sitting alone in the Delta Sky Lounge in the Atlanta Airport. I was on my way home to Tucson after visiting my family and surprising my nana at her 90th surprise birthday party. I setup shop at one of the tables in the window that faced the runway. I sat there and watched planes take-off and land as I sipped on a local IPA brew and ate plate after plate of Pimento Cheese. (Click here for my Pimento Cheese recipe.) In between planes, sips, and bites, I was going through my recipes on my laptop. I looked over my egg salad recipe and I thought to myself, “This looks so boring! You need some help.” That is where I came up with this delicious version of egg salad.
All of the flavors come through in this salad and marry very well together. It’s super creamy thanks to Heinz’s NEW Deliciously Creamy Mayonnaise! It’s great on little toasts as an appetizer for parties, stuffed inside of a pita, or placed in lettuce wrap!
