Meet the Cook: Whenever I have company, I like to be able to just pop the food on the table. So this recipe's a real favorite of mine. I got it from a friend who made it for our church get-togethers.
My husband and I raised four children; today, we have seven grandchildren. In our small town, farmland surrounds us on three sides, and we face the Columbia River on the other.

Everyone has a favorite potato salad, and this is mine. I hope you will be adventurous and give it a try. I've had lots of compliments and requests for the recipe when I make it for summertime gatherings.
EGG SALAD is a refreshing, tasty change from lunch meat or peanut butter sandwiches. The extra preparation time is worth the effort.
Everyone raves about this version with its added zip. It's the touch of mustard and lemon juice that does it.

Here's a paired-down version of a long-time staple. You can also add a little cream cheese to the recipe for an extra-creamy sandwich if you'd like. —Linda Braun, American Egg Board, Park Ridge, Illinois
“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.
An aunt shared this wonderful recipe with me years ago when I was looking for some low-budget meals. The hearty ham and toasted bread make it a deliciously different kind of egg salad sandwich.
