Beet Deviled Eggs

Beet Deviled Eggs
A combination of salty smoked salmon, the freshness of the cucumber, and the sweetness of the beets makes these beet deviled eggs so delicious. They’re bright, flavorful, and crowd-favorite.
This recipe is inspired by a mash-up of many salads my mom used to make around the holidays. One, in particular, is called Shuba. It’s a layered salad of pickled herring with cooked vegetables and mayonnaise.
The combination of flavors was always a hit and worked so well. So these beet deviled eggs use similar ingredients and taste pretty close to the salad.

How to Make Beet Deviled Eggs
Beet deviled eggs are easy to make and you can make them even easier by cooking your eggs and beets ahead of time. Use your favorite technique for boiling the eggs.
I’ll show you how I cook the beets but you can certainly skip this step and pick up cooked whole beets at the supermarket.
- Cook the Beets: Place unpeeled beets in a small saucepan and cover with water. Simmer for 20-25 minutes or until knife tender. Drain, cool, and peel. Using a box grater, grate the beets using a large hole grater.
- Prepare the Filling: Slice hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolk and place in a medium bowl. Using a fork, mash the yolks. Add grated beets, onions, garlic, 2 tablespoons of chopped salmon, dill, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. Mix to combine. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
- Fill the Egg Whites: Spoon or pipe the filling into each egg white. Top with a slice of cucumber and smoked salmon. Garnish with fresh dill. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Deviled eggs make a great appetizer or side dish for any occasion. If you’re in need of a platter to display your deviled eggs, this white egg tray is one we absolutely love. And this food storage container with egg holder trays is a great way to transport deviled eggs.
Make Ahead and Leftovers
You can prepare the egg whites and filling mixture up to 2 days in advance, and refrigerate each separately in tightly-sealed containers until ready to assemble and serve.
It’s best to serve deviled eggs on the same day as assembled. You can refrigerate leftovers for up to 1-2 days but they just won’t look as pretty.
