I learned how to make egg salad in seriously large quantities when I worked in my friend Colleen’s cafe several years ago. Her egg salad recipe was the simplest I’d ever seen and I’m still amazed at how many egg salad sandwiches were ordered.
It goes to show that often with cooking, as with life, simple is best.
