The Best 5-Ingredient Egg Salad Recipe Ever (It Just Looks Fancy)

Egg salad is a delicious lunch or dinner, especially during the hot summer months. Put this dill egg salad recipe into a round mold, add a sprig of fresh dill and you have a fancy lunch or light dinner. We won't tell anyone how easy it was to make. 

All you need to make this creamy egg salad recipe is hard-boiled eggs, fresh dill, green onions, mayonnaise and mustard. Simple, right? Mix all the ingredients together, season with salt and black pepper, and pop it into the fridge until you're ready to eat. If you're not big on dill, use thyme, parsley or your favorite fresh herb. 

This egg salad recipe is also great on a sandwich, of course, or served over lettuce. Make a batch and use it to prepare your lunch box or put it into your kid's school lunch box for a change of pace from ham and cheese or peanut butter.
