I made this Jalapeño Dill Egg Salad at the lake last weekend for Memorial Day and it was one of those things that I knew immediately needed to be a blog post.

It’s loaded with fresh dill, lemon, jalapeño, red onion, celery, greek yogurt, Dijon Mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. It’s really so simple yet bursting with flavor!

How do you hard-boil eggs?

Add eggs to a large pot of cool water (yes, I said cool water!). Next, bring the pot of water to a rolling boil.

As soon as the water starts to boil, remove the pot from the heat and let it just hang out un covered for 10-12 minutes. As soon as the timer is up, add the eggs directly into an ice bath.

What is an ice bath?

An ice bath is just a technical term for a big bowl of ice water! Adding anything to an ice bath helps to bring the cooking process to a hault. The eggs will stop cooking and cool down at the same time. As soon as the eggs are cool, they’re ready to go!

How long does egg salad last in the fridge?

The egg salad should be stored in an airtight container and will last in the fridge for about 3-4 days!

What goes well with egg salad?

Egg salad is the perfect summertime food. It’s great for picnics, lunches at the lake, barbeques with friends, or just lunch prep at home! It goes well with toasted bread as a sandwich, with crackers, on a bed of lettuce, or as a side to pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, grilled chicken, hot dogs, burgers, etc!
