Mom’s Classic Egg Salad

Now that Easter is over, are you wondering what to do with all of those hard boiled eggs?  Mom’s classic egg salad is the perfect answer!!  This is truly the best egg salad recipe you’ll try – it is simple and absolutely delicious.  When I was pregnant with the girls, this was my go-to snack (and something my mother almost always had on hand for me 🙂 )

Eggs are a healthy, high-quality protein. I love recipes where eggs are the star ingredient!!

How to make the perfect Egg Salad

Start with a dozen hard boiled eggs, peeled.  Check out our post on how to make the best, easy to peel hard boiled eggs!

Coarsely chop your eggs to add a bit of texture to your salad.  The key to the perfect tang in this egg salad is the mix of both mayo and miracle whip (it sounds weird, but trust me on this!).  It’s easy to go overboard when adding mayo/miracle whip, so add a little at a time until you’ve found your ideal creaminess.  Stick with a ratio of 2/3 miracle whip, 1/3 mayo for the perfect flavor.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Mix the mayo and miracle whip into the eggs while they are still warm to maximize the flavor  Cool completely before serving and enjoy 😀
