Egg salad doesn’t have to be boring! Spice it up with my creamy, low carb Sriracha Egg Salad! It’s a great Trim Healthy Mama meal or snack served over a big bed of fresh salad greens, rolled in a low carb wrap, or tucked between 2 slices of low carb bread.
Did you like my Sriracha Deviled Eggs?
Let’s not stop there! Sriracha Egg Salad is great for when you want deviled eggs but don’t want to do all the work. Let’s face it, some days that’s just too much effort.
Just bein’ real, folks. Life gets busy and crazy sometimes and we’ve got to go with the flow.
That’s exactly how this Sriracha Egg Salad came about, actually.
As much as I love those spicy stuffed eggs I just didn’t feel like taking the time to mash egg yolks and stuff egg white halves. I just wanted to dig right in to that spicy, eggy, goodness.
I know…how lazy, right? Like I said — just keepin’ it real.
Hard Cooked Eggs Made Easy.
The bane of any egg salad recipe is peeling the eggs after they are cooked. I’ve tried ev-er-eee-thing under the sun to get my eggs to peel easily. But the only thing that actually works 99% of the time (there’s always that ONE egg now and then that won’t play nice) is my Instant Pot.
Since we have hens in the back yard we almost always have fresh eggs on hand. Even those peel easily!
Here’s how I do it:
- Put 1 cup of water in the liner pot and add the trivet.
- Add your eggs. You can pile them on top of each other, really!
- Secure the lid and set to SEALING.
- Set on MANUAL for 5 minutes.
- Forget about them for about 15 minutes after they are cooked…
- Open the IP and remove the liner pot (it’s hot, use these handy silicone mitts).
- Place the liner pot in the sink and fill with cold water.
- Allow the eggs to cool a bit then peel.
Now, sometimes this method leaves you with that green tinged outside that indicates over cooking. Ideally, you will release the pressure immediately and get them out of the IP to cool.
I just tend to forget about them. If you are more precision-minded than I am check out these detailed instructions for No Fail Instant Pot Eggs over at All the Nourishing Things.

I’m sure #sriracha #egg #salad is not classic #Irish #breakfast fare but you know, that’s just how I roll. That’s what sounded good this morning so that’s what I made (recipe on the blog, link in bio 😁). This @twiningsteauk Irish Breakfast #tea is really good! Normally I take my tea plain but this rather robust tea needed a splash of cream and pinch of pure stevia. #twiningsteatime #lowcarb #mondaymorning
