⅓ cup Dill Greek Yogurt Dip

2 tablespoons chopped onion

2 tablespoons sweet or dill relish

Salt and pepper to taste


Put eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Cover the pan and bring water to boil. Remove from heat and let the pan sit, still covered, for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, drain hot water from the pan and fill with cold water and ice to cool eggs. Peel eggs.

Chop eggs and combine with yogurt, onion and relish.

Hack: This can be served on bread or, if you’re looking to cut back on your carbs, you can serve it with salad greens.  Try mixing in some chopped tomatoes and cucumbers!

Hack: Hard-boiled eggs keep in the refrigerator for one week so consider making a few extra while you’ve got the water boiling! They make a great snack alone, pickled or deviled eggs.

  1. Hi Cynthia
    I love your quick and healthy recipes. This looks very much like the Russian salad, but of course healthier. 

    I cannot cook anything complicated so your recipes come in very handy to me. Thank you for the idea. Perhaps you should make them available in a book one day in the future. Have a nice day. Marisa

    1. Thank you for your kind comments!   I had to take a minute to look up a Russian Salad as I had never heard of it before and it looks delicious.  I’m going to have to try that.

      A cookbook would be an interesting undertaking.  I’ll look into it!

  2. Another lovely recipe Cynthia and so quick and simple to put together. I love eggs and it’s nice to know that I can just add a few extra ingredients and make a meal with bread or salad. That Dill Greek Yogurt dip sounds delicious and always available.

    Your recipes always make me hungry.

    1. I love egg salad and was pleased to find how well eggs blend with this Greek yogurt dip.  The 

      Dip lasts in the fridge for two weeks and has so many uses!  

  3. I love egg salad! Question? Does the yogurt dip come pre-made or do you make it yourself? I know my daughter makes a dill dip and she rants and raves about it! So, the idea of mixing it with eggs sounds amazing!! I cannot wait to make this. Your website is beautiful too, just had to mention that, also love how the social media icons follow you down the page. Anyway, again sounds yummy, but my picky husband will not eat it, he will not eat pickles! Can you believe that? Who doesn’t like pickles?? 

  4. This egg salad recipe is simple and to the point, just how I like it.  The dill definitely is what makes the salad taste so good… But I may just try your extra option and add cucumbers to it as well.  I bet that would add even more great flavor.  I’m no pro chef so this easy type of recipe can fill up my big appetite while still being quick, delicious, and healthy.  Thanks!
