The Best Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe Has a Refreshing Secret Ingredient

What is it about egg salad that makes it so comforting? This easy egg salad recipe has lemon juice in it, which really brightens it up. 

The egg salad recipe is made with hardboiled eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice (secret ingredient), Worcestershire sauce, minced celery, minced green onions and fresh chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley. Season the mixture well with salt and pepper and get ready to enjoy every bite. 

Serve this creamy egg salad recipe as a sandwich filling or over lettuce. For some heat, add a few shakes of crushed red pepper flakes. This is a great meal-prep recipe. Pack it in meal prep containers with fresh vegetables, cubed cheese and fresh fruit
