Helpful hints

  • If eggs are purchased at least a week ahead of time they will be much easier to peel when boiled.
  • Compare brands and select the mustard, mayonnaise and pickle relish with the lowest sodium content.
  • Refrigerate overnight for optimal flavor.
  • Serve with low-sodium crackers or spread on sandwich bread. 
  • Keep egg salad in an insulated bag if taking away from home to keep it cold and avoid food spoilage.
