Egg salad is a popular appetizer or side dish that is made with hard-boiled eggs. Typically, this salad is made with mayonnaise, but I prefer to use my homemade vinaigrette. This easy-to-make recipe can be served as an anytime snack or as a delicious starter to a meal. This is absolutely one of the quickest salads that you can make at home.

        Hello Miebakagh,

        I posted my homemade mayonnaise here a few months ago. I always make my own because like what you have said, we aren't aware of the actual ingredients used by manufacturers so homemade will always be the best way to make a healthier version of our favorite foods.

        Hello, Dred cuan, that is correct. For example, I do know for sure what lard is made of, but not mayonnaise. We have to know what a package is made of always. We are not animals which snoff with the nose to detect that a substance is good for eating. These are the days when labels should be read carefully, and of course, some labels can be misleading.

        Like as I have been saying regularly, I am a natural person Only what mother nature provides is good for me, and my associates.

        Thank you for sharing this "no mayo" homemade salad dressing. Enjoy the day.

        Hi Miebakagh,

        Really great match for a simple salad. A much healthier version of dressing than mayonnaise.

        Hello Dora,

        It tasted so good! A far healthier version of the traditional egg salad that we are used to. I hope you will try it! Have a wonderful day!

        Hi Mary,

        Me as well Mary. I often use mayonnaise whenever I eat my salad. When I started working in pantry station (or the kitchen station where we make salads), I often see passengers who preferred adding vinaigrette dressing into their salad. Since then I started to eat my egg salad with vinaigrette.

        Dred Cuan, I often make egg salad but always use mayonnaise. This time, I'll try your suggestion of using vinaigrette.

        Hello Miebakagh,

        I started cooking simple home cooked dishes including grilled foods since I was 6 years old. I may retire my profession as chef but not home cooking. Thank you for the kind words my friend.

        Hi Miebakagh,

        Salad dressings are typically made of oil. Though todag, there are ways to make your own oil free dressings. Maybe sometimes I make and share it.
