There aren't many more All-American recipes than classic Egg Salad! Hard-boiled eggs are chopped and mixed with mayonnaise, mustard, and topped with crunchy green onion to create the best egg salad recipe out there.


Units Scale
  • 8 large hard-boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 chopped green onion if desired


  1. Chop hard-boiled eggs and add to bowl.
  2. Stir in mayonnaise, mustard, and onion. Season to taste.
  3. Serve chilled.


  • For a heart-healthy and keto egg salad try making egg salad with mashed ripe avocado instead of mayonnaise
  • Change up the flavor of this basic egg salad by using dijon mustard instead of traditional or experimenting with add-ins like chopped green or red onion, fresh celery, relish, or dill
  • I like to top my egg salad with a sprinkle of paprika or Old Bay for extra flavor!
