Egg Salad Filling – Options & Additions
Green Onions – You can finely chop some green onion stems (use just the green) and add this to the filling. This will give you a yellow and green speckled sandwich and the flavours blend very well.
Celery – You can also finely chop some celery and add it to your filling or slice it lengthwise into ¼ inch strips and place along the starting edge of the roll to have a celery center to your sandwich.
