I LOVE the idea of adding zucchini to egg salad, creative! And shoot, if the kids will eat it, even better :)


An untold *secret* in the sandwich isn't going to hurt anyone. Your idea to put chopped zucchini in is great.

Enjoy your camping break!

I have a garden full of zucchini and am always looking for new ways to use it. I love this idea! Thanks.

Youre welcome.  I hope you like it.

Thank you for sharing this recipe - I loved it!

The only thing I would warn anyone about is that it doesn't make good leftovers and not to make it too early. The water in the zucchini made it really runny as a leftover. However, on day 2 I just got around that by putting it in a hollowed out tomato.

Delicious! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks, Mary!  We didnt have any egg salad left, so it was good to know about the watery effect the zucchini has.

I can't agree with you more than when there's a gathering involving children and adults, that there be a special something just for the kids. This fits the bill perfectly..


DELICIOUS!!! i just made this for my lunch tomorrow, and nearly ate half of it before i put it away ;) i didnt have dry mustard so i used a dab of yellow mustard, delicious!!!!
