Amanda's Kids' Lunch froM Food53


I love an egg salad sandwich almost as much as I love eggs with toast. Not that they're very different, but the differences are important to egg and bread devotees. I'm trying to instill our kids with my passion for the world's two most perfect foods, so I put together a zesty egg salad, busy with red onion, capers, anchovy, and celery, and layered it on grainy bread with a few arugula and cilantro leaves. Roasted pumpkins seeds were the intended amuse bouche and the apple as dessert, but who knows, the egg sandwich may very well have concluded the lunch hour.
