Have you been looking for a new, maybe a bit more fun Egg Salad? Well, you have come to the right place! This Egg Salad is out of this world with flavor, texture, and taste!

I grew up with a Grandmother that really knew how to cook. She always was a firm believer that you never used Low Fat anything & you should use the best ingredients you could find. She was the type of cook that would whip up the most incredible dishes with whatever she could find in her kitchen. I was always amazed, inspired & honored to have a place at the table watching her do her magic. Grandma Franklin always made the most amazing potato salad using the freshest herbs and a healthy helping of vinegar. I could never get enough of that potato salad and thought why not test it on some eggs?

Well, I think you can see that the testing went well and this egg salad is not lacking in the herb or vinegar department. I tend to like a lot of flavor in my foods, it helps me feel more satisfied at the end of the meal as well as a little party for my tastebuds.

You could say I learned a thing or two from my Grandma Franklin & I wouldn’t be the chef I am today without all my experiences and memories I shared with her. So…. With that being said this Egg Salad Recipe came from some inspiration from her. I wanted to create something that had so much flavor it lit up your taste buds!

So, without further a do…. here is the ingredients you have been waiting for.

Interested in a smoker?

If you are interested in getting a Traeger I have linked the website here as well as below. I absolutely love mine and have used it for more than just smoking meats. I’d love to answer any questions or concerns you have so feel free to reach out! The smoker has become the place for me to grill, bake and just infuse the smoky flavor to any food. It is so versatile and can be used for meats, veggies, pastries, and cakes! Pretty much if you can create it, it can smoke it!
