HiI love the egg and celery salad at countdown, and just wondered would anyone have a recipe for how to make it,,! I would like to know what sort of mayonaise it is,if anyone can help it would be appreciated,

it comes ready made to the deli. You'd have to ask the supplier. Or play around with mayonnaises you like.

I use budget mayo for my curried egg salad. would imagine you could use it for what you want. may have to add some other things as well.sour cream is in a lot of those deli things.

I used to have it as we used to make it by hand when i worked in the deli - yum as! unfortunately that was donkeys years ago but im sure you beat!1 litre cream , add one tub of softened cream cheese , add curry powder and sliced celery and halved lengthwise halved boiled eggs and refridgerate. MMmmm Now u r making me think of making it again. Banana salad was a fav too. cream, sour cream together with passionfruit pulp, sliced bananas soaked in lemon juice and halved grapes - bad for people on diets lol

I used to work in the deli at New World and ours had sour cream, eta mayo, finely chopped onions and celery with some cut up hard boiled eggs, I can't remember the amounts cause we used to make a huge container of it and I'm not sure if Countdown's is the same but that was about 18 years ago so they probably buy it in ready made now too.

In mine i put eggs, celery, spring onion, tomato & i use either budget mayo or best foods (whatever i have really) & a bit of cream.

korbo, May 23, 1:40am
yes, i make the same as venom, but add fine chopped red onion, no tomato, and about 2 teaspoons of curry powder. depending on who is going to be eating it. always make 2-4 hours before using, so curry goes thru the other ingredients.
