Made with 6 simple ingredients, this easy Egg Salad for One is the ultimate meal prep recipe for those times when you just can’t be bothered to spend hours in the kitchen. 

Egg Salad for One

I don’t know about you, but I love a good Egg Salad, especially when the weather begins to warm up. High in protein and made with healthy fats, it’s the ultimate meal prep recipe! However, store-bought varieties don’t always adhere to Whole30 guidelines and can be filled with long lists of mystery ingredients. So, in an effort to make meal prep fresh and easy, I created this Egg Salad for One! As is, the recipe yields one serving, but I prefer to multiply the serving sizes so I can cook once and eat all week!

To make this recipe, start by hard boiling eggs. Then, slice both your eggs and your green onions into thin pieces. Add all your ingredients to a small bowl, and gently stir them with a spatula or spoon. Serve your meal, and enjoy! 

No, you didn’t read that wrong, and you definitely didn’t miss a step. This recipe is seriously that easy! After the eggs are boiled, it should only take you a few minutes to throw together. You won’t believe how tasty it is, either.
