Directions for How to Make Healthy Egg Salad

I’ve created some healthy egg salad options for you and I will show you how to make healthy egg salad. I’ve always felt that mayonnaise is so plain and boring.  So I don’t add any mayo into my mashed egg instead I use deli mustard.  Combine it with the chipolte mayo and it’s amazing!

  • Gather the ingredients
  • Boil the eggs, peel and mash them using an egg masher
  • Combine mashed eggs, onion, mustard, salt and pepper in medium glass bowl
  • Place egg mixture on toasted sourdough bread with chipolte mayo on each side of bread
  • Add desired salad topping such as arugula or spinach
  • If you’re doing Keto or Gluten Free, lay egg mixture in lettuce and top with chipolte mayo
  • Sprinkle with Smoked Paprika and desired salt and pepper

 

I have shown below 3 variations of how to eat egg salad.

  1. I must say, you got me kinda hungry there for a minute.  I love egg salad, and I am a big fan of healthy eating.  It was fun reading your article.  I felt like you wrote this article just for me.

    The recipe is simply amazing.  It is simple, straight to the point, fast and easy to make.  I want to try it.  I had egg salad before but never on a bun, that’s very creative.  

    I thinks any egg salad’s fan out there would love it.

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
