This egg salad sandwich recipe is a great way to use up leftover hardboiled eggs! It can also be made in less than 10 minutes and is a delicious and healthy lunch for everyone! Instead of using mayo to help bind the egg, we use hummus, tzatziki, or mashed avocado for a healthier option! A touch of turmeric also gives it a lovely yellow colour.
Remember to dice your veggies finely for a delicious crunch!
If boiling eggs from raw, place eggs in a small pot filled with water (the water should just reach the tops of the eggs). Bring to a boil with the lid on. Once the water is boiling, turn down the heat slightly and cook for 7 minutes. Run eggs under cold water and peel the shell off.
Mash hardboiled egg with a fork. Mix in the carrots, celery, green onion, dill pickle, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Mix in the hummus, tzatziki or mashed avocado.
Toast bread if desired. Add the egg salad mixture on top of the first slice of bread and top with the second. Cut sandwich in half or into ¼’s and enjoy!
