The following recipe and photography were provided by local blogger Carolyn Hodges of The Dinner Shift.

You really can’t beat a classic egg salad! This is a traditional egg salad recipe, with ideas for customizing it to your taste with mix-ins like finely chopped celery, chives, pickle relish, and spices. I like to use a 2:1 ratio of Greek yogurt to mayonnaise, but you can customize this to your taste by using all Greek yogurt or all mayonnaise. Classic yellow mustard is my favorite here, but Dijon mustard is delicious too!

This egg salad can be enjoyed in so many ways. Serve it on sandwiches, rolled into wraps, tucked into lettuce cups, with crackers, atop salads, or straight out of the bowl with a spoon! It’s also perfect for meal prep. Store a batch in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week (It will keep for up to five days.)
