Caramelized Onion and Egg Salad

Total Time

From Vegetarian Times magazine, yet another twist on egg salad. :) Cooking time includes time to cook the eggs.


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium low heat.
  2. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 30 minutes.
  3. Peel, then mash the eggs with a potato masher or fork.
  4. Add onions, mayonnaise, and mustard, and mix well.
  5. Stir in the olives, season with salt and pepper.

Made this for lunch and really enjoyed it. Nice change from the usual. I didnt have olives, but am looking forward to adding them next time. Had to add a bit more mayo.

This egg salad is grand - I urge the use of a strong dijon as it adds an extra subtle bite to the recipe. The carmelized onions pack it with flavour - Thank you!

Tasty great change from ordinary egg salad. The carmelized onion gives off a subtle sweetness. I used a bit more mayo than 2 tsp...just enough to hold it together. Thanx for a great new egg salad. I will make this again .
