Consider this your back pocket egg salad recipe. Chopped hard-boiled eggs are combined with creamy and tangy Greek yogurt, while spicy mustard and paprika bring in a little punch of heat. Chopped celery adds crunch while chopped fresh parsley brings balance to the flavors. Everything comes together in minutes. This is an ideal egg salad to bring to a gathering or when you happen to have an abundance of hard-boiled eggs. 

You can customize the salad with your favorite tender herbs like chives, chervil, dill, or tarragon. Switch-up the flavor profile with different seasonings like smoked paprika or your favorite spice blend.  Or enjoy it as-is; it’s great recipe for anytime.

It's perfect for sandwiches, on top of toast, or in a lettuce wrap.  Serve it on top as crackers as an hors d'oeuvre, and if you're feeling fancy, bring it up a notch by spooning some caviar on top.

  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt

  • 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
