Irresistible Egg Salad Recipe: A Must-Make Recipe for That Weekend Picnic Basket

Planning a picnic for Dad this weekend for Father's Day? While you may think of steaks, hot dogs and burgers at first when planning the menu, Dad may also enjoy something on the lighter side like this creamy egg salad. This egg salad recipe is loaded with flavor, textures and will fill Dad up – or be a great appetizer for that steak.

Here's your short and sweet shopping list for this egg salad recipe: eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, radishes, fresh dill and green onions. The ingredients are gently mixed together, seasoned with sea salt and black pepper and chilled until ready to serve. The crunchy radish, fresh dill, sharp green onions, creamy mayo and tangy mustard combine to make a delicious egg salad perfect for sandwiches, as a topping for crackers or toasted bread, or piled on top of shredded lettuce.

Pro Tip: If you get frustrated trying to peel hard-boiled eggs, you need to try cooking the eggs in your InstantPot™. The shells almost fall off. If you've never cooked eggs this way, here's how to cook hard-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot™.
