The cookbook is called Easy Gourmet from I Am a Food Blog and it’s one of the first blogger cookbooks that I ever purchased back when I first started my blog (10 whole years ago!).

A version of this egg salad is something that I have made MANY times from the cookbook. For being so incredibly simple, it’s SO INSANELY delicious! I’m excited for you to give it a try.

I feel as if egg salad has a bad rep but I’m personally a huge fan. It’s 1) delicious 2) super easy to throw together 3) keeps well thus making it a great make ahead lunch and 4) ends up being pretty healthy. It’s also highly adaptable as you can throw any veggies in there that you happen to have on hand.

AND that’s pretty much it. It’s super simple and seriously just SO GOOD!

Description

This simple egg salad is quick to throw together and a fun twist on a classic recipe. It’s filled with protein and great for a take away lunch!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon of curry powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of mayo
  • 2 tablespoons of chives or green onion
  • 1/3 cup of diced celery
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • toasted bread and greens for serving

Instructions

  1. Start by hard boiling your eggs if you haven’t already done so. I do this by boiling a pot of water. Carefully lower the eggs into the pot and boil for 7 minutes. Remove from the water and place directly into an ice bath. Let rest until fully cooled and then peel.
  2. In a medium bowl, use a fork or potato masher to mash the eggs into a rough chop. Mix in the curry powder, dijon, mayo, chives, and celery. Stir to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Serve on toasted bread, or even on it’s own, and ENJOY!
