This Classic Egg Salad Recipe is easy to make and is cool, creamy, and delicious! Comfort food made with simple ingredients.
Quick Easy Meal
Egg salad is one of my favorite quick meals to make. It's easy, tasty, and I always have the ingredients on hand. Ever since I've had my Instant Pot, that's the only way I make hard boiled eggs. That means this can be made in under 15 minutes- how awesome is that?
Now maybe you have an overabundance of hard boiled eggs already- possibly from Easter? Then this is the salad to make! You've already done the hard part, now all you have to do it chop and mix and it's made! Serve it on some lettuce, straight from the bowl, or some gluten free bread if you tolerate that.
Ingredients for egg salad
You will love how creamy this egg salad is. I made sure to use enough mayo to generously cover all the eggs without being overwhelming. The mustard gives it a slight tang and the green onion adds some flavor to keep it from being boring. I decided to top it with bacon and chives because you can't really go wrong with bacon. That is totally optional though and not necessary.
What mayo to use
I used my Homemade Paleo Mayo for this recipe because it's so quick and easy. Some high quality store bought mayo will also work, though. I really like Primal Kitchen because it has no added sugar and uses a high quality oil.
This would be the perfect lunch or dinner in the summer when you don't want to cook. I almost always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge and I've made this more times than I can count for a quick meal. This egg salad will not let you down!
