Easy Egg Salad

Aside from the fact that my middle daughter can't have eggs, they are a staple item for the rest of us! Egg salad is my oldest daughter's favorite food, so I find myself making it quite frequently. Having boiled eggs in the fridge always winds up being a lifesaver for me. My hubby will grab a few to take as a protein packed snack for work, or I'll whip up a quick batch of egg salad for lunch. It's always a great idea at the beginning of the week to boil a dozen! There was a time when I stopped making egg salad because I didn't like any of the mayonnaise that was available. Then I realized that all I had to do was make my own! If there is one thing I've learned over the years it's that there is almost nothing you can't do better yourself.

I found a great recipe for mayo at nom nom paleo. She even has a video! It may seem intimidating, but it's not at all. One of the easiest thing's I've ever made. I personally only had olive oil on hand, and my mayo tasted just like evoo, so I would suggest using avocado oil or something like that.

Easy Egg Salad
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled, rinsed & chopped (How to make perfect hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon yellow mustard (make sure there is not any additives or sugar!) 
  • 2-3 Tablespoons homemade mayo
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a medium size bowl, slightly mashing with a fork. Salt & pepper to taste and serve on your favorite sprouted or gluten free bread or over a fresh salad!
