We love this creamy, crunchy, comforting classic! Serve it in a sandwich or wrap, inside a lettuce leaf, or scooped on top of a green salad.

kitchen gear

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Measuring spoons
  • Small bowl
  • Fork or spoon, for mixing



  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (any kind you like)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 4 large eggs, hard-cooked and peeled



  • Put the yogurt, olive oil, mustard, herbs, and salt in the bowl and mix well.
  • Add the celery and mix well.
  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and then cut them back and forth a few more times (they don’t need to be evenly cut and they don’t need to be cut into tiny pieces).
  • Add the eggs to the bowl and, using the fork or spoon, mix well. Now taste the egg salad. Does it need a pinch more salt? If so, add it and taste again. Serve right away, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.
