    • Add diced eggs, chopped chicken, diced avocados, corn, bacon crumbles, and chopped red onion to a large mixing bowl; toss gently just to combine and set aside.
    • In a separate mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, dill, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper; whisk until thoroughly incorporated. You can also place the ingredients in a jar and shake until combined. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust to your liking.
    • Add as much of the salad dressing as you prefer over the prepared salad; gently toss until well combined.
    • Serve or refrigerate until ready to use.


    • Eggs: It’s important to use fresh and fully cooked eggs. For the best texture, it’s also essential to dice the eggs.
    • Chicken: Dice the chicken into smaller pieces so it’s easier to serve it in this salad.
    • Avocado: If serving the salad later, it is best to add the avocado just before serving.
    • Bacon: You can either crumble cooked bacon and mix it into the salad or chop it into small pieces and use it as a topping for the salad.
    • Salad Dressing: Mayonnaise is the most common dressing for egg salad, but you can also use yogurt, sour cream, or a combination of the two.
    • Chill before serving: Egg salad tastes best when chilled, so refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes before serving. This will also help the flavors to meld together.

      This is so tasty! I love how all of the ingredients are pretty much staples I have in my house already. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of Mayo and a light sour cream and turned out great! I think I’m going to add in a bit of tomato to see how that tastes. Thank you for the great and easy recipe!

            Since this is a salad recipe, you can use whatever you want in its place – cucumbers, cheese, chickpeas, tomatoes, etc. – or you can just leave it out.
