We are avid hikers. One of the challenge of a hike is to pack good food. You want to ensure that you pack something that is easily packable, non-messy, nutritious, tasty and at the same time is rich in good calories. Egg salad sandwich fits that bill perfectly. After a soul crushing hike, eating the sandwich at the top of a mountain with a view as below adds an extra dimension to the whole experience.
- 3 slices white sandwich bread
- 3 hard boiled eggs chopped
- 2tbsp. finely shredded cabbage or lettuce
- 2 tbsp. grated carrots
- 1 ripe avocado peeled and mashed
- 1 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
- 2tbsp. mayonnaise
- 1tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- Salt to taste
Add chopped egg into a medium mixing bowl. Add mayonnaise, mashed avocado, shredded cabbage, salt and pepper to it.
Combine all the ingredients well using your spoon stirring firmly.
Spread breads on a chopping board. generously soon the mixed egg salad onto one slice of bread. Spread evenly using the back of the spoon. Now cover it up with another slice of bread. Spread the egg salad mixture on the top surface of the second bread. Close the sandwich with the remaining bread slice.
Cut the sandwich diagonally across with a sharp knife.
If you are packing them for lunch, wrap the sandwiches in a cling film or take them in zip locks.
