Egg Salad with Greek Yogurt

I love this easy and simple egg salad with yogurt dressing. It reminds me so much of the Russian potato salad Olivier that I grew up eating.

This egg salad is tossed in a creamy Greek yogurt dressing with a hint of fresh lemon and paprika. It’s so creamy and fresh at the same time.

I love to scoop some up into a leafy lettuce cup or serve it over a crisp crostini for an effortless light lunch.

Egg Salad Ingredients

You will need the following ingredients to make this egg salad recipe with Greek yogurt:

  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Dill pickles
  • Canned peas or frozen peas
  • Green onions
  • Fresh dill

Egg Salad Dressing:

  • Greek yogurt

My recipe is made with canned peas just the way I grew up eating the salad Olivier. However, if you’re not a fan of canned peas, substitute thawed frozen peas.

How Do You Hard Boil Eggs So They Peel Easily?

Cover with water: Place eggs into a medium saucepan and fill the saucepan with cold tap water covering the eggs by an inch.

Boil the eggs: Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat.  Let the eggs cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes at a rolling boil.

Turn off heat: Turn off the heat, keep the saucepan on the hot burner, cover, and let sit for 5 minutes.

Strain and peel: Strain the water from the saucepan and cover the eggs with cold tap water. Let the eggs cool and then peel under running water.
