Ham and eggs are a natural pair, especially in a sandwich-style salad featuring green garlic, spicy brown mustard, and crunchy celery.

Ham and Egg Salad ingredients

Ours is a house where hard cooked eggs disappear in the blink of an eye. Ours is also the house where we only dye a dozen or so at Easter, if we even get around to it.

Eggs don’t languish at our house. Today I decided to experiment with the Easter leftovers, creating a tasty sandwich spread. You’ve probably heard of it before. It’s not all that fancy or new, but it is pretty yummy.

My “regular egg salad” is usually eggs, mayo, mustard, and celery. The little twists that I added to this salad were chopped ham, spicy brown mustard, and green garlic. Green garlic is young garlic that looks much like a scallion or green onion. If you can’t find it feel free to use garlic or green onion instead.

I know. Egg salad isn’t super photogenic. Don’t be judging. It’s pretty tasty.

I served this salad on a baguette which was actually a bad decision. The baguette was a little too tough to make it a pleasurable experience. Serve this salad on soft sandwich bread or a soft roll.

    Sounds yummy! How long would you recommend keeping this? I would love to make it as a quick option for my own lunch for a few days in the fridge.

      Just a day or two. Mine got a little weepy after a day.

  2. Kelly says

    Made this for lunch today, minus the celery because we didn’t have any:) Very yummy!

    Hi! First time to your site 🙂

    I’ve been making “naked” sandwiches for my kids but haven’t thought of sandwiches with fillings yet. Will let them check out your shots of the beautiful egg salad – I hope they’ll say yes LOL

    Recipes like this make me wish I could eat eggs but, if they are one of the dominant foods in a dish, I end up with terrible acid reflux, sulfur burps, and other digestive discomfort. This recipes sounds delicious. ::longing gaze::
