The Prettiest Ever Egg Salad

This time of year I always have hard-cooked eggs in the fridge. I also often have a jar of Pickled Beets and Eggs at the ready in the refrigerator (recipe here.)

I came home from the supermarket with pecan-cranberry wheat rolls. I was hungry. In two minutes I made Pickled Beets and Eggs Egg Salad and had a gorgeous and yummy lunch.

This is how to make it: Mash up hard-cooked eggs and beet pickled eggs. Season with salt – I used my Citrus Seasoned Salt (recipe in The Farmstead Egg Guide and Cookbook.)  Stir in just enough mayonnaise to hold it all together. Absolutely beautiful Easy. Wholesome. My type of quick lunch.


  1. Oh YUMMY! I bet it’s the perfect combination of sweet and sour, smooth and creamy, tasty and delicious. Can’t beat a tasty egg salad sammy with eggs you gather yourself. Delightful! Like a ray of spring sunshine. Thanks!

  2. Egg salad is an awesome meal… but those cranberry pecan rolls must be the topper!

  3. That’s one good looking sandwich! Is the roll fro a local bakery or a large bakery chain?

  4. The goat boys were putting on quite a show just now before going in. Like knights jousting. It was so funny.

    • They were showing off for me. Overweight, fuzzy wuzzy knights. Not the sort of knights that maidens sigh over, but I do love them!

  5. I am just starting to see the spring upswing in laying and there is a dozen sitting pretty in my fridge. Scarlet is coming out of her (very late) molt and has laid several soft-shelled eggs. I suppose she will never be on the top of the egg-laying charts but that’s okay with me. Maybe she’ll go broody and I can put a couple of chicks under her. :-)

  6. I’ll have to try this. Sounds good. My sister likes to mix some Muffaletta olive salad in her egg salad. That’s yummy too.
