I have some older eggs, that will peel nicely, so I will make a batch of egg salad. We ate a lot of it and often growing up. Still eat it on occasion. I plan to do something different to it today. I have fresh Dill in the herb garden so may include Dill.
We will it on sandwiches and as a light salad lunch.

How do you make egg salad?

Mine is a simple recipe:

Eggs
onions chopped fine
sweet pickles or sweet pickle relish
celery chopped fine
Mayonnaise and Mustard, salt, pepper and a spicy blend that includes jalapeno, serano and chipole

Mine isn't dill and isn't sweet, it's sort of sweet and a little bit spicy. Definitely different.

 

As an aside:  did you know if you crack your boiled eggs and put them in cold water for a few minutes they are easier to peel?   Try it.

Dill is good, it does kind of tend to take over if not used carefully.
Celery is a must, not too finely chopped because you need some crunch.
Chives/scallions/green onions, call them what you will, are good too.
A dollop of Mr. Mustard or similar added to the mayonnaise doesn't hurt.

Chopped eggs, a little Miracle Whip to bind, onion powder and a little paprika.
Nothing crunchy in my egg salad or tuna salad or I don’t eat it. NO CRUNCH!!!
Make my deviled eggs the same way. I’m very fussy about the miracle whip or mayo jar. I have my own in the fridge. I’ve seen too many jars with bits of egg or tuna or bread crumbs from improper handling and it grosses me out.
I will only eat my own egg salad........I know, weird right???

I've never made my own egg salad! I love it on some nice fresh bread! I would gladly eat any of the above sandwiches but I'm a fried egg sandwich kinda guy. Throw an egg or 2 in the pan. Bust the yolks with your flipper. Flip them puppies over & put them on buttered toast with mustard on one side & a Kraft slice on the other.

I've made dozens of spicy pickled eggs & I love me a Scotch Egg!

I found it. This tastes good, thought I'd written it on a scrap of paper and lost it.

Hard boil 4 eggs. Do this however you like. Chill and peel.
Slice 2 big Kaiser buns.
Goop =
2 tbs Miracle Whip salad dressing
1/2 tsp salt of some kind, fine grind
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder (granulated is OK)
1/2 tsp Keene's Mustard powder.

optional: 1 tsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce.
optional: 1 tbsp Kraft Hickory smoke BBQ sauce.
optional: 2 very fine slice green onions

> mix the goop very thoroughly.

I cut the eggs with one of those wire egg slicers.
Turn the sliced egg 90 degrees and cut it a second time.

Very gently, fold the shredded egg into the goop. Just spoon it over a bunch of times.
Load the Kaisers.
Muncha buncha lunch.

What we did. we agreed to do something different than our mothers way of making egg salad. However, we could not agree on what to do. So wife took four eggs and I took the other four eggs. And we each did our own thing with stuff on hand.
Marilyn added chopped green olives and a bit of chive, mayo and dijon.
I added a bit of minced green onion, chive, dill, sweet paprika , mayo and dijon.
Tonight we shared, along with tomatoes and cottage cheese. Both were good.
Tomorrow, sandwiches.

I always try to use old eggs that peel easier, but not always handy.  Also, use the cooking method of putting eggs into already boiling water to cook them-and that seems to help a lot.  That said, these eggs didn't peel well for Marilyn.  So when I did my four eggs I used your method above, and it definitely helped. Thanks, Brad

I read about that trick on the internet about a year ago and didn't believe it would work..... until I tried it and it did!!  It isn't always 100% easier, but generally, it works very well.  I can now fix deviled eggs and not worry about messing up half the eggs trying to peel them.

Hard as it may be to process, there are people with strong objections to the very idea of mayonnaise, and my vegetarian/pescatarian daughter is one of them. I made this recipe that is mayo free to tempt her:
 

Egg Salad w/o Mayonnaise

 

Spoiler: I forgot that she also won't eat egg yolks, so she passed, but it was a nice change up from the regular.

For those who don't like/object to Mayo, you can use regular yogurt instead.  I use it sometimes when I'm making salads instead of using Mayo.  If I want more of a savory/tangy flavor, I add a little lemon juice.  If I want it to taste sweeter, I add a little sugar.

When I make Waldorf Salad, I try to always use yogurt instead of Mayo, as I like the taste and it's healthier and not near as fattening.

I used to do all the grocery shopping for the group home, and when we needed it - - I always bought Hellman's Mayonnaise for the house.  The boss took over the shopping after several years, and would always buy that fake mayonnaise labeled: Miracle Whip.  I told her that stuff was a travesty, but she said it's the same thing as mayo.  Some folks just don't get it.

Miracle Whip is not Mayo. Where do people get that idea?
Kraft MW is an ingredient with a particular taste that I need in some things and not others.
That's why I mentioned that specifically. Brands matter, a lot of the time.

Got a bison marinade that I have used for 20 years.
One key ingredient is Kraft brand Hickory-smoke BBQ sauce.
I've tried other brands and had dinner party revolts for messing with success.
