Egg salad is a summer classic and homemade is the best! Making your own egg salad is so easy! At its base it’s chopped hard boiled eggs and mayonnaise and you can add extra ingredients and flavours. I like to add finely chopped celery and onions, either green or red, along with chopped herbs like parsley. Dijon mustard is a must and then a touch of paprika in addition to salt and pepper and a splash of lemon juice for brightness. Egg salad is great as a side all by itself and it’s also good in sandwiches!
