This healthy egg salad with basil is a flavorful and simple lunch idea; it’s made with Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard instead of mayonnaise.


  • 8 eggs
  • 12 leaves fresh basil
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Hard boil the eggs, according to the Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs or Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs methods.
  2. Peel and roughly chop the eggs. Thinly slice (chiffonade) 12 leaves of basil. Finely mince the 1/2 red onion.
  3. In a bowl, combine the eggs, basil, and red onion with 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. Taste and add more seasonings as desired. Keeps for two days refrigerated (add additional fresh basil when serving for a fresher taste).
