  • 3 hardboiled eggs
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil mayonnaise


  • If you haven't already, hard boil the eggs by adding the three eggs to a pot of boiling water for 7 minutes. Transfer to ice bath, drain and peel. 
  • Add the three peeled eggs and two tbsp mayo to a bowl. 
  • Mash until well combined and eggs are chopped up.
  • Add more mayo if you like, or chives, dill, mustard, etc. This is a versatile dish so you can add whatever you like!


  • Feel free to add any herbs or veggies you like. I usually add dill and/or chives.
  • You can use any style of mayo you like but preferably homemade. Why not try my easy immersion blender mayo, or add bacon mayo to take this egg salad in a smokier direction.
  • For a Mexican egg salad, add some avocado, celery, purple onion, cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice.
