Egg Carrot Salad
Hi Everyone, it’s egg salad season!
This Egg Carrot Salad is my new favorite egg salad.
It has 12 hard-boiled eggs, so it’s a great way to use up eggs and Springtime is when those hens are laying plentifully.
Our family loves carrots and we always have a big, 5-pound bag of carrots on hand in the refrigerator – this recipe uses 1 cup of shredded carrot.
Also, if you juice, you can use the leftover carrot pulp too.

How to Make this Recipe Vegetarian
- If you use vegetarian-fed eggs, this recipe can be considered vegetarian.
- Make sure the condiments that you use (i.e. mustard, mayonnaise, relish, etc.) have all-vegetarian ingredients, make sure to check the labels.
Egg salad is great to bring to picnics (make sure you have a cooler to keep it cold!), BBQs, or just to meal plan for the week which is what I usually do.
I like to make sandwiches with this Egg Carrot Salad, you can also eat it with crunchy kettle chips, and/or if you are not vegan/vegetarian sprinkle bacon bits on it.
This egg salad tastes like deviled eggs in salad form.
