The Best Keto Low Carb Egg Salad Recipe

I am trying to get in the healthy mode, and why not try with a flavor-filled keto low carb egg salad recipe? It honestly is the best.

It’s low in carbs and high in nutrients, and you can add some variety with ingredients like avocado, bacon, or even hot sauce. And it’s sooo much better than the local grocery store egg salad.

A Classic Egg Salad Recipe Made With Simple Ingredients

Making egg salad is a great way to cut out the carbs and get some healthy fats into your diet, all while filling you up with lots of flavors.

The easy keto egg salad recipe is usually made with hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, and a few seasonings.

You can eat it as is, add it to a croissant or sandwich, or even top a salad. It’s a great and versatile recipe and has a high amount of protein. (If you add it to a croissant, or bread it will no longer be keto).

A lot of people take egg salad to potlucks or keep on hand to eat for lunch. It’s delicious as a meal or a great addition to any meal.

Variations To Keto Egg Salad

While this classic egg salad recipe is delicious on its own, you can get creative and add a few different ingredients to make it more your own or to switch things up now and again.

I love using dried herbs, and they taste fantastic, but remember that fresh herbs are always going to taste even better.

Here are a few ideas for the easy recipe:

  • Add some diced avocado for a creamier and richer texture.
  • Sprinkle in some cooked and crumbled bacon for a smoky and savory flavor and a different texture.
  • Add some chopped chives or green onions for a fresh taste.
  • Drizzle a touch of hot sauce or sprinkle cayenne pepper on top for a spicy kick.
  • Experiment with different seasonings, such as curry powder, fresh dill, or smoked paprika, to create new flavors.
  • Cut up some celery for a crunchy texture.
