What’s In This Egg Salad Sandwich with Sweet Relish?

See the recipe card below for a full list of instructions and ingredient amounts!

  • Hard boiled eggs – I use this perfect method for hard-boiling eggs… works like a charm every time – no chipped shells or hard-to-peel eggs. I use both the egg yolks and whites in this recipe, but you can add just the egg whites if you prefer.
  • Low Sodium MayonnaiseIf you have 5 minutes, you can make this easy low sodium mayonnaise recipe in your blender or food processor! If you’re looking for a store-bought option, this mayo has only 50mg per serving, which is about half the sodium of traditional brands.
  • Low Sodium Mustard – my easy yellow mustard recipe is sodium & salt free, which makes it the perfect addition to this recipe. If you want a store-bought version, I like this lower sodium mustard which is great to add to this recipe. Regular yellow or Dijon mustard would work.
  • Fresh Celery
  • Cucumber – instead of adding pickles or relish to this recipe (which is a staple in my family’s egg salad) I opted for fresh cucumbers instead.
  • Black Pepper
  • Onion Powder: adds a delicious and savory flavor to this dish as well, and the onion powder is great to add a little onion flavor to this dish… without actual onion. 

Other Optional Add-Ins & Variations

I added onion powder, but if you wanted more of an onion flavor you can add chopped red onions, or green onions.

Fresh herbs can give this egg salad a whole new flavor – try fresh dill, parsley, or even basil.

Swap the mayo for half an avocado. The avocado will give it creaminess, and a nice flavor in your avocado egg salad. You can also substitute out the mayo for sour cream or plain Greek yogurt too.

Fresh bell pepper can give this egg salad a nice crunch!

How To Make This Recipe

  • To make the hardboiled eggs: fill a medium pot half way with water. Bring the water to a boil. Add the eggs, and cook for exactly 11 minutes. Drain, rinse the eggs under cold water until they are cool enough to peel.
  • In a large bowl, add the hard-boiled eggs.  With a fork, mash the eggs a few times each to break them up into smaller pieces.
  • Add the celery, cucumber, onion powder, mayonnaise, mustard.  Stir well to combine, ensuring the dressing evenly coats the eggs.
  • Taste and add pepper if desired.  Serve on low sodium sandwich bread, in lettuce cups, on a bed of greens or in a low sodium wrap.
  • Store leftover egg salad in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

      The recipe makes 4 servings total, so 1/4 of the recipe which is about 1/3 of a cup (may vary depending on the size of eggs you use). If you make it, please let us know how it turns out!
