This egg salad recipe is perfect for the spring holiday table, or just a regular, middle-of-the-week sandwich!
For a while, I was eating a low-carb (keto) diet based on clean eating. At first, I figured it would be impossible, but then I realized just how easy it could be. I didn’t have to feel guilty about eating fat because my body used it for fuel. It was a beautiful thing to enjoy mayo and still lose weight!
You see, after my mom got sick, I sort of went down the junk food rabbit hole for a couple of months. I was eating to survive, which for me meant a lot of food from the freezer section at Trader Joe’s. As a result, I slowly felt my jeans become tighter and tighter.
But I managed to eventually regain some control and routine in my life once I got moved in with Mom. Thankfully, I fell back into my eating plan pretty quickly. It felt great to have those jeans fitting again!
These days, I’ve gone a different route with my eating plan. I still eat clean, but now I eat vegan. However, I know many of you don’t, so these types of recipes won’t be disappearing from my blog. Promise!
How Long Is Egg Salad Good In The Fridge?
- If properly stored, egg salad will last in the fridge anywhere from 3 the 5 days.
- Never leave egg salad sitting out for longer than 2 hours as bacteria can grow quickly.
Can You Freeze Egg Salad?
You absolutely can freeze egg salad. But… the consistency when thawed will be graining instead of creamy. Eggs don’t keep a good texture after being thawed. So while you definitely can freeze it, it’s not recommended.
What To Do With Leftover Egg Salad
- Make egg salad sandwiches.
- Mix it into a macaroni salad with a little extra mayo and some veggies.
- Make a breakfast quesadilla by using it in a tortilla and sprinkling cheese over to melt.
- Mix some tuna in there and make a sandwich. I promise it’s tasty!
- Add it to a green salad.
