Egg Salad & Cucumber Sandwiches Recipe

Cool, crisp cucumber adds a summery crunch to these tasty egg sandwiches with just a little kick. Sometimes I substitute rye bread for sourdough and add celery. —Kelly McCune, Westerville, Ohio

"I liked it. I may use sour cream in my dressing all the time, now. I did chop the cucumbers and mix them in, instead of slicing them."

"Good. I would recommend doing enough of the cucumber mixture as you need in 1 sitting. Leftovers got a bit runny but wonderful the 1st time around."

"I liked this version of egg salad, but it wasn't my favorite. I didn't mind the sour cream taste, but I did find the salad to come out a bit runny. Not sure why. Instead of cucumber I used zucchini. I also added in some leftover bacon. I'm not sure if I'll try this again just because I know there are others I like more, but this is a good solid recipe."

"I hated this version of egg salad. Something about the sour cream, I think, ruined it for me. Will not be making this again."

"Love the flavors! Mine turned out quite liquid, therefore messy to eat! Any ideas for keeping it together without sacrificing taste? I thought I used proper measurements, but maybe not?"

"Delicious as is! I halved the recipe for two of us and the only change I made was to use whole grain/whole wheat bread. Another ToH keeper!!"

"This was so good. I would have never thought to put cucumber in egg salad. A perfect light, cool summer meal! I used Miracle Whip (don't like mayonnaise) and didn't have any sour cream so used more Miracle Whip for sour cream and regular onions and I still loved it. Have already made it twice. This would be good on any kind of bread or even with crackers or plain. I ended up eating a lot of it before I got it on the bread."

"I had no red onion so used green onion instead. To reduce the fat, I used light mayo and fat-free sour cream. Served it on a lightly toasted multi-grain sandwich thin. Excellent, fast, easy. Definitely make these again. Served it with sliced tomatoes and black olives on lettuce and crispy apple slices. Lovely light lunch."

"This was the perfect consistency! The Dijon was a little too zippy for me, but that could be because I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo, so there was extra zip already. Will definitely make again, and again, and again!"
