This curried egg salad is the perfect dish to make when you have too many eggs in the fridge. It makes a great side dish, and is just as good spread on sandwiches made with the freshest bread.
This salad has just the perfect amount of curry powder to give it that little bit of spice, without being too overpowering. The dressing is deliciously creamy, and works so well with the crunch of the celery and flavour of the spring onions.
What you need
To make this salad you will need the following ingredients:
- Eggs – The eggs are boiled, peeled and then chopped. Use the freshest eggs possible for this salad.
- Celery – This salad uses to stalks of fresh celery, which give the salad a nice crunch.
- Spring onions – Otherwise knows as green onions. If you find the white parts of the spring onion too bitey just use the green parts.
- Mayonnaise – Use a full fat, whole egg mayonnaise for the best flavour. The dressing can be made a little lighter by replacing half of the mayonnaise with Greek yoghurt.
- Curry powder
- Lemon juice – Use a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice. If fresh lemon aren’t available, substitute with a drizzle of bottled lemon juice.
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh parsley – The parsley is optional, but makes a tasty garnish, and looks good too.
