Classic Egg Salad

Classic Egg Salad |

I know there are lots of ways to dress up egg salad (eg, Deviled Egg Salad, Curried Egg Salad, Cheddar Bacon Egg Salad, Avocado Egg Salad, Egg Salad with Pickled Celery and Dijon) and I can't wait to try them all. But there's something so comforting and homey about the classic version.

Egg salad makes for such a quick and easy lunch, especially if you already have hard-boiled eggs on hand. Here I've served it in half a pita pocket with some veggies on the side, but a lot of times I eat the egg salad with a spoon and just have some extra celery sticks and gluten-free crackers.

Now it's ready to be stuffed into a pita pocket, slathered between pieces of bread, or eaten with a spoon. Yum!

  1. I don't have a favorite egg salad recipe, but this one looks great! I don't make it nearly enough. That lunch plate looks so delicious and healthy. :)

    1. Thanks, June! I hadn't actually made egg salad for a long time and then I re-discovered it recently and remembered how much I like it. And it's so easy!}
