I was making a collection of salads for a weekend lunch and had a regular egg salad on the list. As I opened my fridge to collect the ingredients, my large jar of pickles winked at me suggestively, so into the salad it went!
I didn’t think that the Chief Taster would like this as I am the one usually face down in the pickle jar and was planning to have this dill pickle salad throughout the week for my lunch. A spoon was confidently offered to him for tasting, only to have my hopes dashed as he dived in for another spoonful. I had to share the salad that week, with requests of another batch!
HOW TO SERVE DILL PICKLE EGG SALAD
Adding the dill pickle really did take the egg salad to another level. I can’t go back to a plain one now. There are many ways to serve this dill pickle salad. It can be served as a side salad, a low carb wrap filling in a low carb tortilla or as an appetiser gently spooned on top of a pickle slice or perhaps a low carb cracker. My favourite way to eat this egg salad is on top of a pickle slice for an extra shot of pickle taste!
HOW TO MAKE A DILL PICKLE EGG SALAD
I like my egg salad chunky but if you prefer it smoother, mash the eggs with a fork before adding the remaining ingredients. It really is just as simple as adding boiled eggs with mayonnaise, flavourings and chopped dill pickles. Add a spoon of pickle juice from the jar if you find the consistency too thick and for an extra shot of pickle flavour.
