One of my mother's friends gave her this recipe in the late '40s. I grew up eating these sandwiches, and they've been a staple with my own family. Although our children have left home, I still make this dish often for my husband and me to enjoy.

"Friends often drop by after Sunday church services, so these sandwiches are a delicious way to enjoy a bite of lunch while we're visiting," relates Marian Aikema of Langley, British Columbia. "They're always a big hit."
One day I decided to make egg salad and just started adding a little of this and a little of that. I came up with this recipe that my family really enjoys. I serve it whenever my grandkids come to visit.
“My husband and I often enjoy these simple but special sandwiches for dinner,” writes Esther Danielson from Lake Arrowhead, California. “Add a bowl of soup, side salad or carrot and celery sticks for a nourishing, full-size meal!”
Green pepper and celery add crunch to this well-flavored and creamy classic sandwich while fresh tomatoes and lettuce lend a splash of color. Tirzah Lujan or Wichita Falls, Texas shares this recipe for her mom's favorite sandwich.
