Can I add relish to this egg salad?
Absolutely! This is my favorite basic egg salad recipe so you can easily add additional items such as pickle relish, green onions, and chopped red onions for even more flavor.
How long does egg salad last?
Leftover egg salad is safe to eat as long as it's been stored correctly. Store leftover egg salad in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days before discarding.
Other uses for boiled eggs?
Besides dying and hiding Easter eggs, you can use hard boiled eggs to make more than just egg salad. I love to add eggs to my tuna salad, use as a quick and easy protein snack, and they're perfect to use when making deviled egg, potato salad, and avocado egg salad.
