15 Easy Keto Egg Salad Recipes That Work Great As Side Dishes And Appetizers

For this list, we’re featuring the easy egg salad recipes that you can use either as side dishes or appetizers. But, before start with the recipes, let’s talk about the incredible egg first.

Eggs are one of the best foods that complement a ketogenic diet. Aside from being an excellent source of protein, a single egg only has 1g of carbs while having 11g of fat. It also has a good amount of the vitamins and minerals that you need daily including folate, iron and vitamins A, B-12, D, E and K. To top it all of, eating eggs can improve satiety and make you feel full for a longer period of time.

With that said, egg salads present a fantastic opportunity to incorporate eggs into your keto diet. The only problem is that most egg salads are often bland and laden with a lot of mayo. So, how can you make your egg salads tastier and healthier? Well, just check out the 15 easy keto egg salad recipes below and I’m sure you’ll find some that will fit your preferences.
