Make my Creamy Ranch Egg Salad Wraps for quick and easy low carb meals and snacks. This egg salad is mayo-based and has no mustard – just ranch herbs and seasonings. Perfect for THM S meals and snacks!
Most egg salads are made with mustard, and believe it or not there are people who are allergic to mustard! I know, because I have a friend who is allergic to many things and one of those things is mustard.
Plus, sometimes you just feel like something different, right?
What Do I Need For This Recipe?
Most ranch seasoning packets contain filler ingredients that are less than desirable. Mister is particularly sensitive to several common ingredients in prepackaged foods so I’ve learned to read labels carefully!
I’ve also learned how easy making your own seasoning blends is, which is super helpful in keeping out those unwanted ingredients!
All you need for this recipe is:
- Hard cooked eggs
- ACV (apple cider vinegar, preferably raw and unfiltered)
- Nutritional yeast (optional)
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- High mineral salt
- Wraps of choice
How To Quickly Make And Prep Eggs For Egg Salad.
If you have a trusty method for making hard cooked eggs, feel free to use it. I’ve tried every trick on the interwebs for making hard cooked eggs easy to peel with no luck.
I use the 5-5-5 method – pressure cook 5 minutes with 1 cup of water, rest 5 minutes then release pressure, then 5 minutes in an ice water bath. They turn out perfectly every time for me.
TIP: Your altitude can affect pressure cooking times so if you’ve not had success with pressure cooking eggs, that could be a factor.
I’ve also got a post on cooking hard boiled eggs in a crock pot, so if you don’t have a pressure cooker give that a try.
Now, for chopping up those eggs! I have an egg slicer that I like to use for a small batch. Here’s how I do it:
First, slice the egg.
Next, take the egg out and turn it the opposite way, so the slices are horizontal with the egg slicer.
Slice them again, then take the egg out (turning the slicer over so the egg pops out onto your palm works best).
Finally, return the egg to the slicer so the ends are to the sides, not top and bottom of the slicer. This will result in little dices so press the slicing wires down while holding the egg over a bowl.
This egg slicer on Amazon has great reviews, and a video showing the technique I described above in case the photos below don’t quite make it clear for you.

What Wraps Are Best To Use For Low Carb Egg Salad Wraps?
If you’re not a THM plan follower, any tortilla you like will do. However, if you are following the Trim Healthy Mama Plan you need to choose on-plan, low carb wraps.
There are store-bought low carb wraps that are on-plan, such as:
- Mission Carb Balance Tortillas
- Joseph’s Lavash (make sure to get the ones with flax and oat bran)
- La Tortilla Factory (Kosher Certified)
- Santa Fe (Kosher Certified)
Keep in mind that these are considered “frankenfoods” and something we should limit to once a week or less. Also, look for wraps with 6g net carbs or less per serving.
Wonder Wraps (page 204 in the 1st THM cookbook) are a fantastic alternative to store-bought low carb tortillas and you can eat them every day if you like!
Also, these Slimming Sandwich Wraps from Wonderfully Made and Dearly Loved or Masa or Lime Soaked Corn Flour Tortillas from Nana’s Little Kitchen are fantastic low carb wrap options for this creamy ranch egg salad and other fillings.
How To Fit These Low Carb Ranch Egg Salad Wraps Into Your THM Meal Planning.
Always consult the Trim Healthy Mama Plan Book for complete information on how to put together your meals.
This is a solid S style recipe. The whole egg plus the mayo means higher fats.
Choose low carb wraps as I listed above or another THM S friendly bread if you want a sandwich. I love my Coconut Flour Flatbreads, and Secret Ingredient Bread in a Mug. There are also low carb bread options in the THM cookbooks.
This creamy ranch egg salad is just as delicious over a bed of fresh greens, too.
