  • 6 hard boiled eggs peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup finely diced celery
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl, combine chopped eggs, Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and lemon juice. Stir with a spoon, breaking up the eggs until you reach desired consistency. I like to leave the eggs a little chunky.
  • Stir in the celery, green onions, and chives. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Serve or refrigerate until ready to use. You can serve the egg salad in bread, in a wrap, with crackers, in a lettuce cup, on top of a bed of greens, or plain.
  • Other optional mix ins: chopped fresh dill or parsley, finely chopped pickles, a sprinkle of paprika or everything bagel seasoning, or a dash of hot sauce.


The egg salad will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
