 "Gone are the days of your grandma’s boring egg salad recipe. Once your hens start laying those delicious first eggs of spring, you can spice up this old luncheon standby by incorporating some new flavors and, of course, everyone’s favorite vegetable this time of year: avocados. The mayo is kept to a minimum in this recipe because the texture of a perfectly ripened avocado adds a good dose of creaminess—and a lot of healthy fats—into the mix."

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 2 T. finely chopped red onion
  • 1 small avocado, peeled and chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 T. mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 T. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup mixed leaf lettuce
  • 6 small buns or 12 slices of bread

Egg Salad Sandwich with Herbs (Naturally Ella)

Egg Salad Sandwich with Herbs and Scallions

Given this whole month revolved around lunch, it felt right to finally share my recipe for egg salad. For the longest time I shied away from mayo-based salads but over the years, they’ve grown on me. The key, I’ve found, is just enough mayo to hold the salad together and not a scoop more (plus lots of herbs). Better yet? I made this ramen bowl with eggs for dinner, cooked a few eggs for a little longer, and made egg salad for the next day- it’s a win/win situation!

Ingredients:

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoon minced scallions
  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon brown mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 slices of toasted bread
  • 1 to 2 handfuls spinach, lettuce, or arugula
