Cajun Herb Egg Salad

Andrea Mathis, RD

Egg salad is a classic for a reason – it’s delicious, versatile, and generally made with inexpensive ingredients. You can adapt your egg salad flavor profile based on what ingredients you have on hand, serve it on crunchy lettuce leaves (like in this recipe) or pile onto bread for a tasty sandwich. Whether you’re serving a crowd or bringing some eggs-citement to lunch, this will become one of your favorite go-to recipes.
