This really is the best egg salad sandwich! The basic recipe is creamy, savory, and full of fresh herbs for an insane amount of flavor.


  • 8 eggs
  • 1 green onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or basil)
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt*
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 slices of bread
  • For the toppings: lettuce, red onion, tomato, etc


  1. Hard boil the eggs, according to Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs or Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs.
  2. When the eggs are cooked and cooled, peel them and chop them roughly.
  3. Thinly slice the green onions. Chop the fresh dill or basil.
  4. In a bowl, stir together all ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. (Tastes best freshly made. You can also refrigerate for up to 3 to 5 days; after refrigerating taste and add a little salt and/or mustard to refresh the flavors.)
  5. If desired, toast the bread. Place the egg salad on the bread and top with lettuce, red onion, and any other toppings desired.
