Mom's Egg Salad

Angela Dean


Mom has made this for years just throwing the ingredients together without measuring. It always comes out yummy! I've made it the same way, until friends started asking how to make it. So here is my attempt at a recipe to share, so you can enjoy it too. My boys love the egg salad and sometimes like to eat it right out of a bowl, instead of having it on sliced bread. My step son has also asked for the recipe.

How to Make Mom's Egg Salad


  • 1In a large pot place your eggs in a single layer with enough cool water to cover them. Bring them to a boil. Let them boil for five minutes, then remove from heat. Run cool water over them to cool them. Drain, and then remove the egg shells. Using a large bowl, cut/slice the eggs into small pieces. I have an egg/strawberry slicer that helps with this step.
  • 2Add mustard, dill pickle juice, chopped onion and mayonnaise to the eggs and mix well with a large spoon or scraper.
  • 3Add salt and pepper to taste. You can use more or less of the onion to your desired taste. This recipe works well for my family...Enjoy!

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
