A paleo whole30 egg salad you'll make on repeat!
I don't think there has ever been a recipe I make over and over again that has taken me this long to post.
I've been whipping up paleo egg salad for years and years, y'all.
Tim always asks me how come it hasn't made its way onto my blog, and I just didn't have a good answer. I think it's because he inhales it too quickly, so how am I supposed to get photographs taken care of?
I also wanted to experiment with the recipe a bit this go around. Let me fill you in on what I found out...
More like this:
- You have got to try making the egg salad with soft-boiled eggs... it is *such* a game-changer
- Adding bacon kicks everything up about 42 notches
- Green onions and chives are the perfect herb add-ins
- Mayo to egg ratio is crucial... and I think I've nailed it
No wonder it has taken me this long to post about it.
There are so many things I have discovered along the way... things I wanted to do and try to enhance this recipe.
I've finally nailed it, and I cannot wait for you to try it. I'm already thinking about the first time I am going to be able to feed Sophie this deliciousness.
Boy oh boy, is she going to be a good eater!
Sophie has been taking up the majority of my time during the day. She is most alert and active when I get the best light during the day.
A lot of my recipe development has definitely taken me longer than usual, but I am trying to embrace the chaos. There is really nothing better than getting to bond with her.
What I will say though, it's been so nice having recipes like this Whole30 egg salad tucked away in the refrigerator.
There are days where I don't have much time or energy to cook, and this egg salad just gives me life in my belly.
I should mention that I have made it before without green onions and bacon. Instead, I'd use red onion for extra bite, and Tim agrees that way is just as delicious as this.
... But who wants to miss out on bacon? Not me.
I've got so many more Whole30 compliant recipes coming your way over the next several weeks.
I'm going to be doing another Whole30 takeover during the winter, so I'm spending tons of time in the kitchen prepping for that.
Later this week, I'll be releasing a pretty darn delicious soup recipe that is paleo, Whole30 compliant AND ketogenic. I'm checking all of the boxes, aren't I?
I'm trying to. Several of you have come to me asking for more keto recipes. It's not something I am an expert at, so I can't slam them out like crazy.
However, I will do my best to get you a nice selection to choose from by the end of 2018! 😉
You will absolutely fall in love with this creamy and classically delicious paleo and whole30 egg salad. Just a reminder that it is completely dairy free and keto too!
Paleo and Whole30 Egg Salad
- 12 soft boiled eggs see notes for perfect soft boiled eggs tutorial

- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped

- Peel and rinse the eggs in cold water. Pat them dry. Chop into small pieces and transfer to the bowl.

2/3 of a cup of mayonnaise is way too much was so disgusting with this much mayo, it is unbeatable. Next time will put in 14 of this amount and add from there if necessary. Since this was my first attempt at this recipe.

Delicious! I halved the recipe and there was plenty for one person to eat for a few days!
Emily Witt says
Amazing. The bacon addition is perfect.
Monica Stevens Le says
Thank you so much!
This is my third time doing whole 30 but my first time making this recipe. I will never make another egg salad recipe, this is so delicious I have to try really hard not to eat the entire batch, thankfully I only made half a recipe!

Haha, this makes me SO happy to hear. Would you mind rating the recipe (on the recipe card using the stars)? It helps my readers out tremendously. This egg salad really is the bee's knees. The soft boiled egg makes a world of a difference! 🙂
