Sweet Southern Egg Salad

If you like egg salad, you will love this easy recipe. I started making this recipe when I lived in Atlanta years ago. I was a caterer and did many luncheons for bridal and baby showers as well as office parties. Egg salad was always on the menu for a luncheon. I got this recipe from a neighbor of mine who made it for me one time. I loved it and started to make it for catering. Now, I make it all the time for my family and when we have company over for brunch. Be sure to check out “5 Easy Steps To Make The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg
