If you’re looking for a different spin on traditional egg salad, then this is your recipe. The unique flavor of Bruegger’s Bagels Cucumber Dill Cream Cheese upgrades this egg salad, and the diced cucumber plays off this flavor infusion while adding some crunch. Make this as a dip for some veggies or bagel crisps (see recipe below) — but do it quickly because the Bruegger’s Bagel Cucumber Dill Cream Cheese is only available for a limited time!
