A Simple and Delicious Egg Salad Sandwich

A delicious egg salad sandwich 

A favorite treat following the week of Easter is a good egg salad sandwich.  We always have an abundance of colored hard boiled eggs and this is an easy way to use some of them up.  The ingredients are quite simple and can be made in a pinch.  I think the secret that makes this such a delicious version of egg salad is using cornichons.  Cornichons are small French pickles packed with flavor.  I purchase them from Trader Joes but they should be readily found in the specialty food section of the grocery.  Spread this easy salad between a nice crusty roll or toasted piece of French baguette for a wow factor

Ingredients:

6 hard-boiled eggs chilled
1/3 cup mayonnaise-adjust to your preferred consistency
2 tablespoons diced sweet yellow onion
6 cornichons-cut into small round "coins"
Salt and pepper to taste
Crusty bread

Preparation:

Dice the hard boiled eggs into bite sized pieces.  Add them to a medium mixing bowl.  Add the mayonnaise, onion, cornichons, salt and pepper.  Mix until everything is well incorporated and coated with mayonnaise.  Spread between two slices of bread.
