Author Amy Reiley


  • 4 large hard boiled eggs peeled
  • 1 scallion ends trimmed
  • 1 stalk celery finely chopped
  • 2 oz smoked salmon
  • 1-2 tsp capers (optional)
  • 2-4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • arugula and/or whole grain bread for serving


  • Finely chop the hard boiled eggs.
  • Slice the scallion lengthwise then slice the two halves into half-moons.
  • Add the chopped egg, scallion, celery, smoked salmon, (optional) capers and 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise to a medium mixing bowl. Thoroughly combine.
  • Add up to two additional tablespoons of mayonnaise to taste. (We like our egg salad on the dry side and find that two is perfect.) Season with salt and pepper to taste.


To serve, divide the egg salad mixture among four slices of whole grain bread or toast and top each with about 1/4 cup of arugula and the second slice of bread. Or divide the egg salad on top of two beds of arugula as a salad for two.
