Keto Egg Salad
- 8 large hard-boiled eggs
- 1/2 cup avocado mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup chopped green onion or cilantro
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Prepare Hard Boiled Eggs
Prepare your hard boiled eggs using your favorite method. I use the my Instant Pot or Dash Egg Cooker to make a dozen hard-boiled eggs at the beginning of the week so I always have them on hand for keto egg salad or for a snack. If you want to go the traditional route of boiling them in a pan, place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water.
Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat.
Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 12 minutes. Do not open the lid until the 12 minutes are up!
Remove from the water and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking.
When cool, peel and chop.
Make the Egg Salad
Place the chopped eggs in a bowl, and stir in the mayonnaise and mustard. Mix well being careful not to break up the chopped egg and turn it into mush.
Add green onion (or cilantro) and the seasonings.
