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.
