This egg salad is a delicious lunch item, by itself or on some bread. I like to add a little extra pepper on top, and that’s all I need for a great lunch!

Egg Salad Recipe

The perfect egg salad recipe has mayo, just a little bit of mustard, dill relish, salt, and pepper. This is a recipe that’s been in the family for years. It’s simple enough to eyeball once you get the hang of it.

A classic egg salad recipe that's perfect for lunch.


  • 6 eggs (hard boiled and peeled)
  • 2-3 tbsp mayo
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup dill pickle relish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Grate the eggs into a bowl. I push my eggs through a cookie cooling rack. Funny I know but hey…whatever works right?
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a bowl, and combine.
  3. Add more mayo or mustard if needed. The mixture should be creamy. Not runny. You don’t want it running off the bread!

How We Use Our Farm Fresh Eggs

We love eggs, so much that we decide to get our own chickens. The Farm Fresh Eggs are truly amazing.

Making deviled eggs can be a little difficult since farm fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. However, if you use my Instant Pot method, you shouldn’t have any trouble peeling them.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, find a way to steam your fresh farm eggs. It’s the steam the really helps with the release of the eggshells. There are several methods you could use to steam them. If you have a double broiler, that would work!

We boil a lot of eggs each week. I give some back to the chickens, and we make deviled eggs, egg salad, or we add hard-boiled eggs to a salad, or just snack on them!

We talk a lot about eggs on this blog since we get 50 per week from our chickens. We have several posts, that you might like to check out if you like eggs about as much as we do! I’ve listed these posts below.

  1. I like to add green onion (diced). If i have some apples getting ready to go bad, I’ll peel them and dice them into really small pieces and add some of them to the egg salad (really tastes good in Chicken salad). and I use Mrs Dash Original or table blend instead of S & P. If there’s any diced apple left I’ll either give it to the dogs (4 toy poodles) or I’ll put some brown sugar in a ziploc bag with cinnamon & sugar, melt some butter and toss the apples in it and then add them to the ziploc baggie and shake shake shake. Put it either in the microwave or the oven until baked (about 10 min on 350) and enjoy! Makes a nice afternoon snack.
