A simple egg salad SANDWICH  that is found easily in the  middleeast, Arabian Countries. Aside from being really tasty, its healthy , if used with brown bread (except the mayo) . It’s basically an easy egg salad recipe with olives added to the mix. It may sound like an odd recipe, but trust me, you are really going to love this. This makes it the perfect dip and sandwich spread. Usually had as a sandwich for breakfast, my husband used to eat this in his bachlore days. 


makes 4-5 full sandwiches

serves 3 or more

  •     4 hard-boiled eggs
  •     1/4 cup Olives
  •     2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  •     1/2 cup chopped celery/coriander
  •     salt and pepper (optional)


In a mixing bowl, use two knives or an egg cutter to roughly chop the eggs.  Don’t mash it, but don’t leave the chunks of egg too big. Chop the olives too into tiny bits. Add finely chopped coriander leaves or celery or any other fresh herbs. Mix in the mayo and gently toss.  Check for consistency – you may want a little more mayo.  You’ll probably want to add some pepper, but  it might already be salty enough from the olives.  Serve on bread or lettuce leaves. The olives give the salad a slight briney, vinegary kick, plus tons of flavor from the salt and olive juice. You really don’t need to add much else in terms of seasoning especially salt.

Who does not like olives on pizzas, pies, sandwiches, salads, sandwiches or alone, so this time it takes the pleasure of eating to get to know the properties that they bring to our body, such as goodness of nature. Whenever you have the opportunity to eat olives, a moderate dose will always be healthy, but depending on quantity and not in excess.
