Best egg salad recipe that is easy to make with only seven ingredients.  You will need high quality mayonnaise to make this recipe.



  • 12 eggs, hard boiled and cooled
  • 3/4 Cup quality mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons sweet relish
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon salt
  • pinch of cracked black pepper


  1. Hard boil the eggs and place them in a large bowl.
  2. When the eggs are cool to the touch, chop them into pea size pieces with a pastry blender or fork.
