We love egg salad.  It is so easy to make and so good for sandwiches or to serve on a bed of lettuce with crackers.  We love it at my house for a quick sandwich anytime hunger strikes.

6 eggs, boiled, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.  Serve over lettuce leaves or on your favorite sandwich bread.  Makes about 4 sandwiches.  Enjoy!

  1. We always add green olives to ours and it is delicious!

  2. Paula Dewitt says:

    If I can add a little twist to a perfect food, add curry powder for a new flavor profile to egg salad. It is fantastic!

    my grandmother did hers like this too my hubby loves it

  4. I like to add some sweet pickle relish to the mix. I(f you don’ t
    ,,,,,like onion chunks, or want to pipe it into eggs for devilled eggs, just cut an onion and scrape the cut end making juice.

  5. Perfection with cream of tomato soup — family favorite combination. 🙂 You might want to try it a bit lighter for a sandwich: slice eggs, spread one slice of bread with reduced fat may, the other with mustard, add a nice crunchy lettuce leaf. Also great with toast. Enjoy!

  6. Your egg salad looks and sounds yummy indeed! I always make egg salad too but only with Japanese mayo and pepper (a little lemon/lime juice sometimes). I shall try your recipe the next time! 😉

  7. oooh, that sandwich looks so delish~! am definitely making egg salad this week… can’t resist it. Besides, the hubby needs a break from pimiento cheese~!

  8. I love egg salad, too, Judy—especially for a quick summer lunch. But I’m like Balisha—I love it so much that a lot of it never makes it to a sandwich. 🙂

  9. This wouldn’t serve 4 at my house. You’d have to count me twice…because I’d eat spoonfuls out of the fridg whenever I passed. Balisha
