Olive and Egg Salad Sandwich

egg salad sandwich, originally uploaded by mysterybridgers.

This is a super quick and tasty lunch.

For two sandwiches you will need:

3 eggs
6 manzanilla olives (you can sub other olives if you wish, but these are pretty tasty--go for olive bar or jarred type olives, not canned)
1 tablespoon of soy mayonnaise (or regular mayonnaise)
1 teaspoon of yellow mustard
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
salt to taste
1 large or 2 small tomatoes
8-10 basil leaves
2 burger buns or bread of your choice

First make hard boiled eggs (put eggs in water and bring to boil, then cover and set timer for 10 minutes). Then chop eggs to your desired size. Pit olives if they are not already pitted (you can press your thumb down on the olives with a bit of pressure to squash the olive and the pit will be easy to remove, but you might squirt olive juice on yourself of your kitchen walls, so beware). Then chop the olives into small pieces and mix with the eggs. Add the onions, mayonnaise and yellow mustard. Mix and salt to taste. You can also add a little more mayonnaise or mustard if you wish.

To assemble, put the egg salad on the toasted bun or bread, slice a couple of nice slices of tomato and put that on top of the egg. Then place a few basil leaves on top of the tomato. Put the other half of the bun or slice of bread on top and enjoy.
