5 Ingredient Buffalo Egg Salad

One of my favorite things to make at the beginning of the week is egg salad. It’s healthy, delicious, and one of those super easy grab-n-go type of meals. It’s also very versatile so you can change up the way you eat it throughout the week if you’d like. This 5 Ingredient Buffalo Egg Salad has so much flavor with only 5 simple ingredients!

5 Ingredient Buffalo Egg Salad

The 5 Ingredients you’ll need are:

  • Eggs
  • Celery
  • Buffalo Sauce (Love Frank’s Red Hot Original)
  • Mayo (My favorite is Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo)
  • Green Onions

What is the easiest way to hard-boil eggs?

My go-to method is to put the eggs in a large stock pot and cover with cool water. Then put over the heat, bring to a rolling boil, and immediately turn off the off but let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10-12 minutes. Once your timer goes off, transfer to an Ice bath to let cool/stop the cooking process. From there, peel per usual and proceed!
