With just four basic ingredients – hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper – this creamy and satisfying Easy Egg Salad recipe comes together effortlessly in a matter of minutes! Whether enjoyed as a sandwich, a side dish, or simply on its own, this easy recipe is sure to become a permanent staple in your recipe collection!


  • 8 hard boiled eggs, finely chopped
  • ½ cup mayonnaise 
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper


  1. Add half of the finely chopped eggs to a large bowl. I find it’s easiest to chop the eggs once they are cold and have been refrigerated for several hours or overnight. Add the mayonnaise, salt and pepper and mix until well combined. 
  2. Mix in the remaining chopped egg and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Store covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
