Sometimes, only egg salad will satisfy a true southerner’s cravings. There’s just something about those creamy yolks mixed with mayo and dijon mustard that makes the world go round. That’s why this recipe for Egg Salad Toast is one of my favorite things.
My recipe for egg salad is a basic southern go-to, so there are no surprises here. But, what may surprise you is how good it tastes when asparagus comes along for the ride. The combination of creamy egg salad and savory asparagus is a delicious treat.
