Our family tradition is to add dill to our egg salad. I’m not just talking about the herb – I mean we add dill pickles, dill pickle juice and dill. So if you’re a fan of straight up mayo and eggs, this is not the egg salad for you.  But if you love dill and dill pickles, you have come to the right place.

How Long Does Egg Salad Keep?

Hard cooked eggs kept in their shell in the fridge will last about 1 week in the fridge.

When you break open the eggs and use them in a salad like this, their shelf life is shortened.

Egg salad will last about 3-5 days in the fridge.
