Japanese Egg Salad


Jump to Recipe

We always enjoy having side dishes with our meals, especially ones that you can make quickly along with your entree.  Usually, we make some kind of green salad, but when we have leftover eggs from breakfast laying around, this Japanese Egg Salad is our go-to recipe.  It is super easy to make and absolutely delicious!  It tastes like a sandwich in a bowl and who doesn’t like sandwiches?  So next time you have leftover eggs in your fridge, give this recipe a go!!

For this recipe, the only special ingredients you would need is Kewpie mayo, which you can pick up on Amazon or a local Asian supermarket.  You can use American mayo like Hellman’s or Best Foods, however the salad will be less creamy and not as balanced.  Also, I recommend using either Persian or Japanese cucumbers.  American cucumbers do not offer the same crunchy texture.

Now, let’s get started!
