KETO EGG SALAD
Eggs are an excellent low-carb food. Not only can you hard boil eggs and scramble them, but you can also mix and match them with many other recipes and ingredients.
We cook and eat eggs at least 2-3 times per week in our house. We usually eat eggs for breakfast, but then a recipe like this comes along, and I find myself cooking up this easy Keto Egg Salad recipe in a jiffy.
It’s a light yet filling low-carb salad with delicious fresh ingredients and flavor perfect for the summer months or any time of the year.
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Cherry tomatoes
- Butter lettuce
- Green onion
- Dijon mustard
- Sour cream
- Salt and pepper
Steps to making Keto Egg Salad with Bacon
(scroll down to the bottom of the page for the full recipe and ingredients with a printable recipe card.)
Step 1: Cut the hard-boiled eggs and place them in a bowl.
Step 2: Halve the cherry tomatoes and add them to the same bowl as your diced eggs.
Make sure all of the fresh produce has been washed properly.
Step 3: Add the cooked bacon crumbles to the same bowl as the tomatoes and eggs.
Tip: Costco and Sam’s Club sell a large bag of 100% bacon that is already crumbled. It is excellent to keep on hand for recipes like this to save time.
Step 4: Chop up the butter lettuce and add to the mixture. Also, add the diced green onion.
Step 5: Add the rest of the ingredients and seasoning and fold them together. Serve and enjoy.
Tip: Some people only like to use the white of the egg and not add in the cooked yolk. This is up to you. You can chop up and use the whole egg or the section of the cooked egg that you’d like.
VARIATIONS TO THIS LOW-CARB EGG SALAD RECIPE
Even though the ingredients are simple, there are always ways to change them.
- Add some cayenne pepper or chili powder to make this egg recipe spicy.
- You can also chop up and add more onions or celery for an added crunch.
- Don’t forget the pickles! We’re pickle-crazy in our house, so sometimes I’ll add some dill pickles for flavor.
- Adding in the bacon can also be optional, so don’t feel like you can’t make this recipe if you don’t have that ingredient.
The versatility of this low-carb salad is what makes it a fantastic recipe to make!

HOW TO STORE
This egg salad stores perfectly to enjoy the next day. Be sure to store it in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge.
You may notice a little bit of liquid in the container when you’re eating it the next time, so be sure to give it a good stir, and it’ll be fine.
Eating any leftovers within 2-3 days of storing them in the fridge is best.

Delicious egg salad. The only thing I wish is that instead of just number of servings, there was an indicator of serving size. I’m bad at eyeing number of servings and splitting accorindgly.
I don’t measure my food, I just divide it evenly. I always have 4 hungry kids waiting to eat. 🙂
