Egg Salad Recipe
Egg salad sandwiches are always popular around Easter because we usually have a fridge full of hard-boiled eggs but I actually like this egg salad year-round. My mom used to always make it when I was little so this is a super comforting dish to me!
Today I used our leftover dyed Easter Eggs and whipped up a batch of “Easter” Egg Salad. You may see a little pink or blue in my sandwich, but don’t worry – it’s just food coloring! haha!
How to Make Egg Salad
Egg Salad Ingredients
- hard-boiled eggs – leftover easter eggs are perfect for this!
- mayonnaise – REAL mayo. Trust me here.
- mustard – gives this egg salad a little tang and flavor
- salt + pepper
To Make Egg Salad Sandwiches
- Start with hardboiled eggs and peel the eggs. I like to use an instant pot to make my eggs, but you can also use the traditional boil method.
- Cut the eggs in half and add the yolks to a bowl and the egg whites to a cutting board.
- Mash the egg yolks with the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper.
- Chop the egg whites and add to the egg yolk mixture and mix well.
- At this point, you can also add in mix-ins if desired.
Serve this egg salad recipe on toast, crackers, lettuce wraps, or even on a salad.
How Long Does Egg Salad Last?
IF you have leftovers, you can store in the fridge for 2-3 days. Also, if you don’t eat it immediately, it can be left out on the counter for about 2 hours before you need to place in a fridge.
