Favorite Egg Salad

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

With Easter just around the corner, I’m expecting to have an excess of hard boil eggs.  If I don’t use them to make Deviled Eggs, then I’ll be using them for egg salad.  Of course, you don’t have to make sandwiches out of your egg salad.  Eating it straight from the bowl is perfectly acceptable too.

You can find instructions for making hard boiled eggs here.


Favorite Egg Salad

  • 6 large eggs, hard boiled, cooled and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Mix the eggs, celery, red pepper, green onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice and Dijon mustard together. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Serve between slices of bread, sandwich style.
Who Dished It Up First: I’m sure there are a million different recipes out there for egg salad.  This is my version.


  1. oh yum! I’ve never put red pepper in egg salad! I am gonna have to try that! Thanks!

  2. I love egg salad sandwiches! I haven’t had them in a long time, and there are some things in your recipe that are different than mine. But yours sounds lovely!
