If you have ever attended a cookout or purchased pre-made egg salad in the grocery store, upon examining the ingredients you may have noticed SUGAR. A lot of people add sugar to their salads.

I don’t think a salad like this needs one, but feel free to add sweetener if you wish.

If you love eggs, you will probably also enjoy my Keto Low-Carb Cauliflower Potato Salad.

How to Boil Eggs on Stovetop

I like to eliminate some of the guessing when boiling eggs and I use my air fryer or Instant Pot to make them. Check out my Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs recipe and Instant Pot Boiled Eggs recipe

Here is how to do it on the stove:

  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan.
  2. Cover the eggs with cold water. Fill to the top of the eggs.
  3. Bring the saucepan to a boil.
  4. Once the water boils, remove the pan from the heat. Cover the pan.
  5. Allow the eggs to sit for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the eggs and place them in an ice bath to cool for 10 minutes.

How to Make Keto Egg Salad

  2. Stir and serve.

Is Mayo Keto Friendly?

Typical mayo is made with added sugar and harmful oils. I like to use the mayo from Primal Kitchen made with olive oil. It is keto-friendly and available on Amazon.

How to Substitute Mayo

If you are looking to make the recipe with no mayo, use plain Greek yogurt, cream cheese, or sour cream instead.

What to Eat and Pair With the Salad

A lot of times egg salad is eaten as a sandwich on bread. You can enjoy this with Keto Chaffles or any of the following:

What to Serve with the Salad

Air Fryer Ribs
Keto Smothered Pork Chops
Smothered Chicken

How Long Will it Last in the Fridge

It will last (tightly covered) for 3-4 days.

Can You Freeze It?

I don’t recommend it. Mayo and eggs typically do not freeze well.

Recipe was so simple and delicious. This was a perfect recipe for when the weather makes it hard to cook and be cooped up in a hot kitchen. Flavor was on point-I ate with celery stalks or on a large lettuce leaf.

This recipe came together really quickly. I used my dash egg cooker to boil the eggs and had all the ingredients on hand. It was delicious! This is my new go-to egg salad recipe. Thanks Brandi!

I made this recipe to use up the eggs my kids dyed for Easter. I love it and the addition of the paprika makes it taste like deviled eggs. Definitely recommend!
