Keto & Whole30 Egg Salad Recipe

Not only is this Whole30 egg salad super addicting and delicious, it’s so easy to make! Once you have all the ingredients on hand, it takes just 10 minutes to put together and mix into a salad.

Chopped hard-boiled eggs are so creamy and flavorful covered in dijon mustard and mayonnaise, and the onion, chives, and bacon add such a nice spice and crunch to balance everything out. I was a little lazy so I bought this paleo mayonnaise to make this egg salad, but if you are up to it, you can make it yourself because it’s seriously so good!

Easy Hard Boiled Eggs

Ever since I got the Instant Pot, it’s the only thing I use to make hard boiled eggs because it’s easy, quick, and they come out perfect and easy-to-peel every time. Don’t have one? No worries. Here are both stove top and Instant Pot methods to make hard boiled eggs for this Whole30 egg salad:

Stove Top Method

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Take out eggs straight from the fridge, then lower the eggs into the water so they don’t break, and let it come to a boil again. Once it does, lower the heat, and let the eggs simmer for 11 minutes.
  3. Prepare a large bowl with an ice bath.
  4. Once the eggs are done cooking, place them in the ice bath for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Peel the eggs under cold running water.

Instant Pot Method

  1. Pour 1 cup of water into the Instant Pot, and place a steamer basket or the trivet it came with over the water.
  2. Place the eggs on the steamer basket or the trivet.
  3. Close the lid, and make the sure the pressure valve is set to Sealing.
  4. Cook on high on Manual for 5 minutes, and prepare an ice bath.
  5. Once it beeps to a finish, naturally depressurize for 5 minutes, then release the pressure.
  6. Immediately transfer the eggs to the ice bath and let it sit for at least 5 minutes. 
  7. Peel the eggs. They should be peel easily!

    Egg salad was my favourite when I was a kid, and I still love it today! Love the bacon addition. A little egg salad with bacon lettuce wrap is a great way to start the day!
