Years ago, I developed this recipe after seeing recipe after recipe for Egg Salad that called for relish… I HATE RELISH so it is NEVER in my house and I wasn’t about to buy it just for the one dish that I make that calls for it.

So, thankfully I was able to mesh a few recipes together and the final product is delicious.

As you view this recipe, please excuse my mediocre (at best) photography skills…I do my best but I am in no way a professional, nor does this single mama of four have the budget to hire one.

I only share my favorite recipes ever, so please don’t skip past it because I failed to capture just how yummy it is.

The last egg salad sandwich recipe you’re ever going to need!

The best part about this recipe is that you can switch up whatever ingredients you want which means that you can make it as healthy or as unhealthy as desired.

You could also try adding some Bell Pepper, Chunks of Pickle, Green Onion, make it with Avocado Oil Mayo to lighten it up even more. I wouldn’t suggest trying all of those “mix-ins” at once, but just wanted to give you some ideas on what you can do with it.

If you want it to be a salad on its own you could garnish it with paprika and/or some extra sliced hard boiled eggs… there really are so many things that you can do with this versatile recipe… I just recommend trying it as is the first time and then switch it up after that if you wish.

I think my favorite thing about this recipe is that I pretty much always have all of the ingredients on hand at all times. Which equates to a super simple meal…like so simple, that other than boiling and peeling the hard-boiled eggs, it only takes a few minutes to make this.

How long does Egg Salad last?

If you find yourself wondering how long does egg salad last in the fridge, I personally wouldn’t dare let this easy egg salad sandwiches recipe (or any other egg salad recipe) sit in my fridge for more than four or five days… but that also means that I put it in an airtight container and did not leave it out on the counter for more than twenty minutes or so at a time.

You need to be a little bit more careful with both eggs and mayo, so that is my recommendation on how long you can store this before consuming or tossing it in the trash.

This simple egg salad sandwiches recipe actually tastes best if you cover it tightly and let it sit in the fridge for several hours before you serve it so that the flavors can blend nicely, but if you’re in a rush it will still taste pretty good.
