How to Make Egg Salad Sandwich

Classic egg salad is easy to make, and once you’ve got the salad prepared, just put it on some fresh bread to make a tasty sandwich. This is such a great recipe because you can make parts of it ahead of time (hard boil the eggs and prepare the egg salad) to make your life easier during a busy week.

How to:

  1. Hard-boil the eggs (should be done ahead of time so they have time to cool)
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl
  3. Put the egg salad on some bread, add lettuce, and you’ve got a sandwich

If you’re making the egg salad ahead of time, store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make a sandwich. You can also serve it as a side dish on a bed of lettuce. This is a great dish to keep around for quick meals!

Is egg salad good for you?

Eggs are full of protein, but other than that, it isn’t the healthiest thing. This egg salad sandwich recipe is quite reasonable when it comes to calories and fat grams though.

If you want to make this a bit healthier, remove the yolk from some of the eggs, use light or low-fat mayo, and pile extra vegetables onto your sandwich!

What do you put in egg salad?

Eggs and mayonnaise are the base, but it’s the details, the extra ingredients, the spices & herbs, that really packs it with flavor. This is the best egg salad sandwich recipe because I’ve also added in a delicious homemade herb blend!


  • Eggs
  • Mayonnaise
  • Celery
  • Lemon Juice
  • Scallions
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Parisien Bonnes Herbes Blend (see recipe notes for the included herbs)
