Curried Egg Salad

This egg salad has an added zip from curry and cilantro.
It's also gluten-free.
The Monday of the May long-weekend brought guests for lunch. Completely forgetting to plan for that meal, I was out of luck in the grocery department - everything was closed.

Meredith says that I have a knack for putting a meal together in an emergency, or when "there's really nothing to make." When we first started dating, I had dropped by her place in the middle of the day but I was starving. Meredith wasn't ready to go out yet, and I'd "just have to wait until we leave because there's nothing here." Well, by the time I she had emerged from her room, to Meredith's astonishment, I had whipped myself up a sandwich from what little there was in the fridge.

For this brunch, we had some soup from the previous evening, and out of the fridge and pantry, I pulled out some eggs, half a sweet onion, some celery, a can of salmon, a half-empty tub of cream cheese, and a bit of cilantro from the bunch I planned on using later during the week. I set the salmon and cheese aside for another dish and went to work.

  1. There needs to be more gluten free recipes. Thanks for your efforts.

  2. I think that everything is better with curry and cilantro. Sounds delish.

  3. Mm, always fun to pull together a last-minute recipe from random ingredients!

    But I'm intrigued - what was the sandwich that you made for yourself?

  4. @Jenny: I honestly don't remember. Likely some lettuce, olives and smelly cheese (smelly good, not smelly bad). Probably some raw veggies on the side. Just enough for a a quick lunch.

    Her fridge was pretty empty by my standards. She used to eat out frequently.
