Heather’s Favorite Egg Salad

By · Print This Post Print This Post

img_3258xThanks to Easter, I still have lots of hard-boiled eggs (in many colors :) ) in my refrigerator. One of my favorite things to make with them is egg salad. A few years ago, I was in search of the tastiest egg salad recipe. I tried a few, but each one seemed to be lacking something. Perhaps it’s one of those recipes that you just have to adjust to your own liking. So, that’s just what I did. And fortunately, I wrote down the ingredients and amounts so I could duplicate it year after year. If you haven’t created your own recipe for egg salad yet, try starting with mine:

Heather’s Favorite Egg Salad

Ingredients:

6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1/4 Cup mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard (I use coarse, or whole, grain.)
1/2 tsp prepared yellow mustard
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 TBSP sweet pickle relish
3 green onions, sliced (about a 1/4 Cup)
1/2 tsp dried dill weed
1/4 tsp celery seed
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, lemon juice, and relish.
  2. Then add eggs, green onions, dill weed, and celery seed.
  3. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper.

Additional Notes:

  • Serve your egg salad on bread, rolls, tossed greens, or whatever your preference. In the picture above, I have used Schar dinner rolls, sliced in half. I gently removed the center of the bread and placed a leaf of lettuce in the bottom. Then scooped egg salad on top. I thought it made a nice presentation and was oh so good!
  • Schar Classic White Rolls are wheat-free, gluten-free, and lactose free.  I found them on the shelves with other gluten-free items at Wegmans. Because they are not frozen, you can also purchase them online at  glutenfree.com. We use the rolls for hamburgers, too.

I love egg salad. I’m not picky at all about what’s in it, but your recipe sounds great. I’ll give it a try.
