Ingredients in Egg Salad Sandwich Without Mayo

egg salad sandwich without mayo äggsallad ingredients mise en place
  • Eggs — you will need hard boiled eggs for this recipe. We cook our eggs in the Instant Pot for 5 minutes on High, followed by 2 minutes of natural release, and then submerge the eggs in ice cold water for 5 minutes. Alternatively, you can boil eggs in water for 8 minutes in a pot on the stove.
  • Labneh — Turkish labneh is excellent for it’s creamy texture and taste similar to cream cheese but lower in calories and fat.
  • Sour Cream — use regular, not low fat or light.
  • Dill — fresh dill, chopped into small pieces.
  • Red Onions — diced fine, but you can try any onions you have on hand. Finely chopped chives are excellent in this mix as well.
  • All Purpose Seasoning — we use our own All Purpose Spice Blend. Or if you don’t have a spice blend, you can put in about a quarter teaspoon each of paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Lemon Juice — freshly squeezed is preferred for the best flavor.
  • Hot Sauce — we use Frank’s Red Hot.
