If you are looking for an easy egg salad recipe, then you have come to the right place. This 4 ingredient egg salad is so good, and is perfect for picnics, poolside lunches and fancy tea sandwiches. It’s a great salad to make if  you have boiled eggs left over from Easter, and even if you don’t…it literally only takes a few minutes to make! Easy 4 Ingredient Egg Salad Recipe

For some reason, egg salad sandwiches take me back to when I was a kid. There is just something about a big pile of egg salad served on white bread that reminds me of lunches by our neighborhood pool. Now that I’m an adult, I also enjoy egg salad on a croissant. If you are trying to cut carbs, you can totally eat egg salad on a bed of lettuce or with some sliced avocado. It’s funny…I don’t really make egg salad during the fall and winter, but I always get a craving for it right around Easter time. I guess the thought of boiling eggs for dying reminds me of it or something. Once I make the first batch of it, I seem to keep it around all summer long. It’s such a nice alternative to lunch meat sandwiches! Let me show you just how easy my egg salad is to make with only 4 ingredients…

Easy Egg Salad Recipe

hard boiled eggs in a glass bowl

Start with 8-10 chopped hard boiled eggs. I like to cook a large batch of Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot as seen HERE or you can boil them on the stove. HERE is a quick trick for Boiling and Peeling Eggs if you don’t own an Instant Pot.

chop eggs using a food chopper mandoline slicer

I like to cheat and use my Vegetable Chopper Mandoline Slicer Dicer to chop my eggs quickly, but you can totally just use a knife ;)

delicious egg salad

Add the eggs, 1/4 cup of mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon of mustard to a bowl and mix together well, making sure to mash the yolks of the eggs a bit. If you don’t like mustard, you can absolutely leave it out…I don’t think you will really notice it though, it just adds a little bit of zing to the egg salad.

Next, mix in 2 tablespoons of sweet pickle relish, and salt and pepper to taste. If you prefer dill pickle relish, you can use that instead. If you don’t have any pickle relish, just dice up a few of your favorite pickles and add them…easy, peasy!
