Yummy Egg Salad Sandwich

This is my all time favorite sandwich! I found it in a Country Living magazine awhile back and i just came across the recipe again. It tastes so fresh and is a perfect springtime lunch :)

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3/4 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup watercress
  • 2 slices of a crusty whole wheat loaf
  • 1 teaspoon fresh snipped chives
  • 1 small French breakfast radish,thinly sliced
Place eggs in a medium saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat,cover and simmer 5 minutes,remove from heat,and let eggs sit in pot with water for 5 minutes. Cool eggs in a large bowl of ice water for a minute or so. Peel shells,and tear eggs into large pieces. In a bowl,gently mix together eggs,mayonnaise,olive oil,garlic,salt and pepper. Place watercress on one slice of bread,layer with egg salad,and top with chives and radishes. Cover with second slice of bread and serve.
