cucumber & basil egg salad

I have always loved a good egg salad. I mean, I absolutely love eggs so it is only natural for me to love them in every form. When I came across a recipe for a Cucumber-Basil Egg Salad on the epicurious app (do you have it? you should!) it just sounded like my new favorite egg salad recipe.

The basil and cucumber add a fresh flavor to the egg salad and I decided to use a blend of mayonnaise and greek yogurt after it worked so well in the spring chicken salad. It is the perfect egg salad for spring and summer. Serve over greens with bread or crackers.

    An epicurious app would be the perfect source for food inspiration on the go – love it! I’d probably wander around the grocery store with my nose in it trying to figure out what to make for the week.

    This looks great! I love the idea of using Greek yogurt with the mayo. And I currently don’t have the epicurious app but am planning to download it right after I hit “submit.” :)
