My entire home cuisine changes when Summer hits. Lighter, cooler, salads, sandwiches and general dishes that just feel easier to eat, but also have a traditional connection to what you would eat at a picnic, on the beach or outside on the deck.
Egg Salad is a classic. We have all made it and it’s a recipe that is perfect in it’s original form even though many add their own flair to it. This is mine. Classic, easy and delicious with a crisp crunch brought to it by the celery. I eat it on a toasted piece of gluten free toast and sprinkle some lava rock sea salt on top that I found at the market here in Maui. It’s also great garnished with chopped parsley or cilantro.
