FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We have some frequently asked questions answered for you. If we miss any that you may have, pop them in the comments section below.

How long does egg salad last

Egg salads last for 3-5 days in the fridge when stored in a tightly sealed container. Food containing eggs and dairy should always be stored in the fridge. Do not leave your egg salad on the counter for more than an hour at the most. If it sits on the counter for over 2 hours it is safer to just toss it.

Is Egg Salad healthy

How you make your egg salad will determine how healthy it is. Using clean healthy ingredients is quite possible to make a tasty and delicious egg salad. Use greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Skip on the honey if it calls for honey. All ingredients used in making a classic egg salad are healthy except for the mayo. Even though mayo is perfectly fine for those on keto. Eggs can be high in fat and cholesterol, so you may want to remove some yolks if you are counting calories or watching your cholesterol.

Can you freeze Egg Salad

Eggs typically don’t freeze well. An egg salad made with mayo won’t freeze well and would end up watery once thawed. Not to mention losing the creamy texture and taste. If you must freeze your leftover healthy egg salad made with yogurt, also expect it to be watery once thawed. You may be able to fix this by adding some more yogurt, salt, and pepper to your egg salad before serving again.
