Simply put - the best egg salad sandwich recipe I have come up with so far. The secret is the crunchy sunflower seeds and diced pickles along with pickle juice and hot sauce for zing. Plus it's cheap and filling!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place hard boiled eggs in a bowl and mash down with back of fork. Add mayonnaise, hot sauce, sunflower seeds, diced pickles, pickle juice, salt and pepper, to taste. Fold together until mixed throughly.
  2. I like to serve my egg salad on toasted multi-grain bread with some slices of tomato, lettuce and red onion.
  3. enjoy!

I scaled this back for 3 eggs and the DM and I enjoyed this egg salad, she had hers in a sandwich using wholemeal/wholegrain bread with some lettuce and I had mine on the plate with a garden salad. Thank you KimberleyClaire79 for a lovely egg salad recipe and to Sydney Mike for the recommendation, made for I Recommend Tag game.

Made this salad according to the recipe, which I cut in half for 2 of us, & then cut the amount of hot sauce in half yet again! I enjoyed the use of sunflower seeds, but another time I'd probably use sweet pickles instead of the dill! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
