Eggs are versatile & delicious
In our house we have eggs constantly, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Scrambled, fried, hard boiled….I’ll serve them any which way I can.
Of course, living in California gives me access to incredible California eggs from happy chickens from California! The eggs in the picture are from free range chickens on a farm just a few hours north of me.
Just look at the color of those gorgeous yolks!
When combined with fresh herbs, pickled red onions, and a few other key pantry staple ingredients, these eggs will become an epic filling for my Herb Filled Egg Salad for Sandwiches!

This Herb Filled Egg Salad For Sandwiches is so easy to put together, and keeps in the fridge for a few days so you can even meal prep your lunches a few days in advance!
How to make Quick Pickled Onions
Dice half a red onion into small pieces.
In a small jar, combine the onions with a pinch of salt, and enough white wine vinegar to cover.
Let sit while you prep, or for a few hours in the fridge.
Wash and dry your herbs.
Be sure any dirt or grit is removed from the herbs you will be using to make the egg salad.
It is also important that the herbs are dry when incorporated into the mix.
We wouldn’t want to add any extra liquids into the mix – that could make the dressing for our egg salad a bit loose.
Use those knife skills!
Chop all of the cleaned and dried herbs into very small, uniform pieces.
How to make hard boiled eggs in the pressure cooker.
The easiest way to make perfect hard boiled eggs is in the pressure cooker.
Place the eggs onto a trivet, if your pressure cooker came with one, them add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker.
Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, carefully manually release the pressure, then transfer your eggs to an ice water bath to cool.
They come out perfectly this way every single time and also peel so much easier than traditional hard boiled eggs.
You can dice the hardboiled eggs as large or as small as you would like, but personally I like to try to cut them just about the same size as the other diced egg salad components like the red onions and herbs.
Now we mix!
No big secret to how this is done, just put all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl, season, and stir your egg salad until completely mixed together.
You can eat as-is with a spoon or move on to the next step to make a sandwich.
