Truffle Egg Salad Salad

Truffles just make everything taste better.  But maybe what I like best about them is that truffles take an ordinary recipe and turn it into cuisine fit for a foodie.  Since the art of purchasing great truffles isn’t cheap or easy to come by, I suggest investing in some truffle salt and truffle oil, for those with refined taste and a savvy budget.  Just a hint of truffle goes a long way, and it can transform a simple egg salad into something sensational.
