This classic egg salad with dill is both flavorful and low carb. The herb dill goes well with both eggs and mayonnaise. It also doesn't clash with any of the usual things egg salad is served with.
For me, this is the best egg salad recipe. It's great for making an egg salad sandwich, serving with crackers or on a bed of lettuce
Easy Egg Salad with Dill Recipe: Inexpensive Protein
I will boil up a dozen eggs every few weeks, and we add them to garden salads, eat a few on the fly and I'll make a small batch of egg salad with dill as well. I love dill, it tastes like spring to me and just using dill is far more delicate in flavor than a dill pickle egg salad.
This dill egg salad recipe is an inexpensive way to add protein to your diet. The recipe is great for those of us who are eating mostly organic, keto or simply low carb and low sugar. Serve over greens as I have shown or pair with a cold side like Dill Pickle Pasta Salad or Asian Cucumber Salad.
As long as you use real mayonnaise, not a sweetened whip, the recipe is keto compliant.
Dill Egg Salad: The Herb Boost
Dill even dried has such a fresh taste. It nearly screams spring as you bite into it and the smooth flavor teams up perfectly with both eggs and mayonnaise.
While dried dill was used in this particular egg salad recipe for convenience sake, fresh works just as well, if not better.
If you are not watching carbs you will still find adding dill weed will elevate your homemade egg salad sandwich.

Egg Salad with Dill, Perfect for Leftover Easter Eggs
As you can imagine leftover Easter eggs are not a big deal in my house, we eat them up. Many are not as accustomed to having hard boiled eggs on hand, and an easy egg salad like this is a tasty simple way to enjoy them. Why not whip up a batch with your leftover Easter eggs 😀
Storing Dill Egg Salad
Store Egg Salad in an airtight container or bowl tightly covered with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator promptly. The salad will last 3-4 days in the fridge. [ref]

I usually don't like egg salad, but that looks really good!
I love egg salad but haven't had it for awhile. This recipe looks and sounds amazing and I'm going to have to sneak some extra eggs for myself and make it!
Great minds think alike, lol! I add dill to my egg salad, too.

Love everything about hard boiled eggs and egg salad, minus having to remove the shells. That alone keeps me from making those items, but I miss eating them, especially after seeing your mouthwatering recipe. Any tricks to share?

Egg salad with dill sounds great! I don't know why I don't experiment with dill more. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Your egg salad is so delicious, especially with the dill! Dill goes so well with eggs, I love those flavors together (especially adding some smoked salmon and fresh chives!)
This egg salad recipe is great for me. I've recently have been obsessed with dill. I added a little dijon mustard to mine too.

Dill was just the thing I needed to make my egg salad less boring.
