Delicious! Most of the egg salad oozed out the back though, when I cut it into quarters. I should have made a little more , but it was a really good and nice, cool dinner. Enjoyed the fresh veggies with the ranch dressing. Lots of iced tea with it, and a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream finished it off. The peaches I had planned to cut up to have with dinner, will be for breakfast instead.

Such a beautiful plate, Cheryl! Are the red orbs in the sammie cherry tomatoes?

That's a beautiful dinner Cheryl. I've had the same problem with oozing filling out the sides of sandwiches like tuna and egg salad. Now I serve those kinds of sammies open faced...no problem now. This works especially well with sturdy bread like ciabatta rolls.

We went out for dinner!

I had a steak with baked potato and Caesar salad, TB had ribs and wings with rice and veggies.

For the rare times I eat cake, I would always rather have cream cheese frosting.

Thanks, Dawg and Kay.

Yep Dawg, those are grape tomatoes. I love them in egg salad.

Kay, I also sometimes make open faced sammies, and I should have this particular time because the onion buns were so thick. I also sometimes do without bread altogether and make lettuce wraps. But I wanted that delicious onion bread.

Cheryl, I would never have thought to put cherry tomatoes in my egg salad! Thanks for the idea, I have cherry toms coming out of my ears!

It's a nice combination - I scoop out the 'mater innards so it doesn't water down the egg salad.

Lucky you to have so many cherry toms! My patio tomato plants are long done now. I might be able to start again, but I think I'm done with planting for the year, too.
