I love a good old-fashioned egg salad. The classic combination of mayo, celery, a touch of onion, perhaps – so simple, so elegant. When you want creamy and comforting, a classic egg salad is the way to go.

Sometimes, though, you don’t want creamy or comforting. Sometimes, what you really want to do is put the pedal to the metal.

On those days when you want to drive your tastebuds screeching and smoking around the test track, this is the egg salad to do it with. It’s utterly delicious and thoroughly exciting, but it’s definitely not for weaklings. Go big or go home, baby!


This recipe uses Vietnamese chili garlic sauce, but you can use any spicy Asian sauce (such as Sriracha); just add a little garlic if it doesn’t already have it.

Here’s how to make the Spicy Asian Chili Garlic Egg Salad:


6 hardboiled eggs
20 snow peas, cut in 1/4 inch slices
2 tsp minced or grated fresh ginger
1 scallion, minced
2 Tbsp chili garlic sauce or equivalent
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup mayo
1 tsp lime juice
1 Tbsp diced pimentos or roasted red peppers
1 med jalapeno, seeded & diced (optional)


Coarsely chop the eggs, then mash gently with a fork to desired texture.

Fold in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate at least 20 minutes to allow flavors to meld.
