Let’s talk about the main ingredient: bring out the eggs!

As the name suggests, the eggs in this recipe are everything, but they are also not necessarily essential if you want a vegan choice.

You can use tofu, chickpea, or potatoes. While the flavor will taste similar, with some mixing, the texture will be similar, too.

It is time to get the rest of the ingredients ready

Mayonnaise acts as a binding and creamy agent in egg salad, but it can be replaced with vegan mayonnaise or even plain Greek yogurt. You may need to add a bit more salt and pepper, as these options aren’t as salty.

As for the pickle relish, this one is a personal choice. You can swap it out for onions, green or black olives, green peas, or cherry tomatoes.

The dry mustard and cayenne pepper adds the final seasoning that this salad needs. You can use other ingredients, however, like cumin, paprika, sage, chives, or onion powder.

If you can’t find dry mustard, use the leftover one in your fridge. Just make sure you start slowly, so as not to overpower the flavor.

Once ready, mix your ingredients, and serve with bread as a sandwich, or with toast, and even as a side dish.

So, what are you waiting for? It is time to make this week’s lunch easier and tastier.
