This creamy old-fashioned egg salad recipe can be served on crunchy lettuce, toasted bread, or in a pita for a quick and easy lunch idea.
Recipe type: lunch
Serves: 4
  • 8 eggs
  • ½ cup mayonnaise (good quality - I used Hellmann's)
  • 1 teaspoon prepared Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion (scallions)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • salt
  1. Place egg in a saucepan and cover with cold water (about ½ inch above eggs). Add a dash of salt to the water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat.
  2. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop. Make sure you peel them carefully to avoid egg shells in your salad.
  3. Place the chopped eggs in a bowl, and stir in the mayonnaise, mustard and green onion.
  4. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Stir and serve on your favorite bread or crackers.
