Curried egg and kipper salad

I love to read Rex Stout’s mysteries featuring the gourmet detective Nero Wolf. One of the recipes mentioned in his books gave me the idea for this delicious adaptation. The smokiness of the fish and the curry powder make this a very mellow choice for lunch or snack sandwiches.
I usually eat this immediately, it smells so good! Great on crackers, seeded rye bread, or any bread you like.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine mayo, sugar, sweet relish, curry powder and vinegar in cup, mix well and set aside.
  2. 2In med bowl combine celery, chopped eggs and kippers, using fork to break up fish into fine bits.
  3. 3Add dressing and mix well with spoon. Can be eaten right away or allowed to ‘marry’ flavors for a few hours in fridge.
  4. 4Dressing can be adjusted to taste. Grated apple can also be substituted for celery.
