On Saturday afternoon, my friends and I attempted to watch the Chicago Air & Water Show over Lake Michigan. However, it started raining pretty heavily about an hour into the show, so we went to the the Drake Hotel to wait out the storm and relax with afternoon tea. The Drake Hotel recently altered their egg salad tea sandwiches by incorporating mango chutney. Due to my recent success with Major Grey’s Chutney, I thought making my own egg salad with mango chutney tea sandwiches would be fun for lunch on Sunday!
To make my own egg salad, I kept it simple and eyeballed the ingredients. I chopped up two hard-boiled eggs and gently combined them with chopped cucumber, Hellman’s mayonnaise, cracked pepper, kosher salt, chopped basil, and a good sprinkling of cayenne pepper. Finally, I went all fancy and cut the crusts off my bread before spreading the egg salad and the mango chutney on the slices. This combination really was tasty. I may have to bring a sandwich for lunch later this week!
