Easy Egg Salad Sandwich

We went a little crazy with Easter egg coloring this year. It was our first time dying eggs with M and I’m pretty sure I boiled close to 36 eggs…. oops. We might eat a few hard boiled eggs if they’re made, but I feel like we have eggs coming out of our ears.

Overflow of Easter eggs = Egg Salad!

I like my egg salad simple with just a few ingredients (including pickles :))

Here’s everything you need:

  • 4 hardboiled egg (sliced in half)
  • 1 tablespoon mince shallots
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickle
  • 1 tsp spicy mustard
  • 2 heaping tablespoons mayonaise (or nayonaise)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Throw all ingredients in a bowl and use your fork to mash and mix. I like my egg salad a little chunky so I mash it just enough to mix everything.

Pile it between two slices of whole-wheat bread and enjoy!

This recipe should make enough for two sandwiches 🙂

    That sounds good! I love egg salad and pickles; they rock! Both on their own and together.

    I LOVE egg salad! And I just so happen to have some extra hard-boiled eggs from Easter 🙂 My aunt made them, actually. I think I would use Chobani plain Greek yogurt for the “nayonaise”….have you ever tried that?! It works well!
