The Best Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe Has a Refreshing Secret Ingredient

What is it about egg salad that makes it so comforting? This easy egg salad recipe has lemon juice in it (the secret ingredient), which really brightens it up. I love to add lemon juice to so many recipes, and this creamy egg salad confirms why. So good!

The egg salad recipe is made with hardboiled eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice (secret ingredient), Worcestershire sauce, minced celery, minced green onions and fresh chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley. Season the mixture well with salt and pepper and get ready to enjoy every bite. 

Serve this creamy egg salad recipe as a sandwich filling or over lettuce. This is a great meal-prep recipe. Pack it in meal prep containers with fresh vegetables, cubed cheese and fresh fruit. What a great way to use up those leftover Easter eggs!
