Egg Salad and Cucumber Sandwiches

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

    This sandwich was delicious. I had no dill weed on hand so used a few parsley flakes for garnish. I had it on pita bread as I prefer a lighter bread option for lunch. This has been added to our go-to recipe file. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    For those who thought it was too moist, try seeding the cucumber first to avoid so much wetness

    I was afraid to try it at first, only because we go in for plain food, but I'm really glad I did. It was really tasty.

    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.

    The cucumber makes this a summer sandwich.

    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.
