How to make egg salad:

You will need:

  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise (try my homemade mayonnaise recipe!)
  • 1 large soft tomato, diced
  • 2 large handfuls of mesclun greens or chopped lettuce of your choice


  1. Remove the peels from the hard boiled eggs. Place them in a bowl with the mayonnaise.
  2. Keep mashing the eggs with a fork and begin whisking the eggs and mayonnaise together:

Making your own mayonnaise is quick and super healthy.

However, if you do use store-bought mayonnaise, make sure to buy one that has no sugar, preservatives or mystery ingredients like “natural flavors.”

I recommend Canola Mayonnaise by Spectrum Naturals (you can find it in the health food section of most grocery stores):

Look at its ingredients list:

Compare this to the ingredients list for a standard mayonnaise brand like Hellmann’s. You’ll see about 50 ingredients, many of them unpronounceable chemicals. Ick!

Next, place your mesclun greens or chopped lettuce into a bowl:
