Cool-n-Crunchy Egg Salad

This cool-n-crunchy egg salad definitely stands out from the crowd. It’s not quite your traditional egg salad. But it’s not so different enough that it’d scare people off at your next family get-together. Chopped carrots add a nice crunch to the salad, and using cream cheese and only a bit of mayonnaise makes the salad a little thicker than your standard egg salad. It’s rather tasty good as a salad, and would be just as excellent on sandwiches or crackers.

Cool-n-Crunchy Egg Salad

I found the original recipe over at the Louisiana Egg Commission’s website. Also try my more traditional egg salad, perfect on hot dogs or sandwiches.
