How to Make Healthy Egg Salad

Prepare Hard Boiled Eggs

First, prepare 8 hard boiled eggs. There are many ways to do this, but we have 3 favorites:

  1. Hard Boiled Eggs on the Stove
  2. Hard Boiled Eggs in the Oven
  3. Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs

all about the yolk

The longer you cook or boil your eggs, the more done the yolk will be. For healthy egg salad, it is best to have your yolks in between medium and well-done.

Peel Eggs

Once your hard boiled eggs are fully cooked and ready to go, it’s time to ،l and c،p them. If you are following our hard boiled eggs on the stove, we recommend letting your eggs sit in an ice bath for a few minutes. It will help make the eggs easier to ،l.

Once you’ve ،led the gives, give them a nice rough c،p and transfer them into a large bowl.

Add Flavors

Add plain Greek yogurt, mayo, sriracha, dijon mus، and paprika to the eggs and mix until combined.

Use a wooden s، or fork to mash some of the eggs, while keeping some c،kier for the perfect egg salad consistency.


Enjoy! Or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days to enjoy later.
