Hello from Amsterdam! I’m on vacation here this week and am loving it! I was jet lagged for a couple of days, but feel much better now! We have been here for 4 days and have seen so many sights around the beautiful city. We have dined at so many great restaurants and cafes, visited the Anne Frank Museum, had lunch at a cat cafe yesterday and took a train to Utrecht. I’ve worn my Fitbit everyday and have walked 6-7 miles a day! I’m looking forward to everything else we have planned!
Anyway, I made and took photos of my egg salad before we left and wanted to be sure to share a recipe while on vacation. I love blogging and it’s a great way to wind down for the day while I’m here! I plan on posting my green bean recipe next week followed by an easy coleslaw recipe when I get back home.
I’ve been making this egg salad recipe for years. My husband loves it and request that I make a batch for lunch all the time! It’s a pretty basic egg salad, but that’s how I like it. You just need mayo, mustard, a couple of seasonings and a little dill pickle juice. I add pickle juice to my Deviled Eggs as well and think it makes them so much better! There are also tips in the Deviled Eggs post on how to make the perfect hard boiled eggs. An egg slicer is also a lifesaver for chopping hard boiled eggs. I’ll link the one I use in my Amazon picks below.
I like serving my egg salad with mini bell pepper slices, cheese crisps and pork rinds (as dippers). It’s also great on lettuce wraps, inside a low carb tortilla wrap or on a crispbread from Trader Joe’s. There are so many yummy options!
I also love stuffing the egg salad in these mini peppers. I usually serve it snack plate style for an easy lunch. Along with the peppers, this plate include: Unexpected cheddar cheese from Trader Joe’s, cashews, olives, strawberries, mini dill pickles and a milk chocolate peanut butter cup from ChocZero (1 net carb).
