I lightened up classic egg salad recipe by using whole milk plain yogurt (you can also use Greek) to replace some of the mayo, and added cashews, raisins, dried apricots, and sunflower seeds for a little crunch and flavor.

If you tried my Copycat Trader Joe’s Curried Chicken Salad and fell in love with it, then you’ll love this egg version, too!

Oh, and if you have 18 trillion hard boiled eggs to re-purpose and need another egg salad varietal, you can also try my Avocado Egg Salad.

It requires just 4 ingredients and is mayo-free and super creamy!

  5. This is the time of year for great egg recipes! Love your naturall dyed eggs and all the spicy flavors in this eggs salad 🙂

  6. We ‘uns (meaning me and Jerry) were just discussing egg salad last night, after watching Food Network, and he was saying how much he wanted some. I think that this is a sign. I need to buy some eggs, though, because that’s what happens when you don’t have little ones and your brain is focused on April 18th. I didn’t do such a good job at the grocery. Not to worry. I’ve got things under control. hahahahaha

    1. Were you watching that show with Alton Brown?? I watched that too! The Austrian guy was cracking me up. I wanted him to win, but noooooo. Anyhoo, egg salad’s puh-retty fantastic no matter how you slice (chop?) it, so I’m sure you’ll end up with zee best egg salad evah!! xo

  7. This is the prettiest egg salad I have ever seen!! I never thought I liked curry much until I had a curry chicken salad similar to this and I have been hooked ever since! I didn’t dye any Easter eggs this year, but I’m always up for some delicious egg salad!
