Quick and Easy Egg Salad

  • Author: Krista
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Category: Salad, Snack
  • Cuisine: American


  • 6 hard-boiled eggs ( roughly chopped)
  • 1/3 C mayo ( (I like the olive oil version))
  • 1 TBL Dijon Mustard
  • a squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 TBL chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • salt/pepper to your taste


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, and chives. Season with salt and pepper. 

  2. Add chopped eggs and mix gently to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

  3. Serve with lettuce, crackers or on your favorite sliced bread.


Notes: Try not to overcook the eggs. When eggs are overcooked the yolk dries out, requiring you to add more mayo. Check out this post on my technique for boiling the perfect hard-boiled egg.
