Mayo-Free Egg Salad Wraps

1 Jul

Egg salad is one of those lunches that no one thinks about, but nearly everyone loves. It’s relatively simple, free of adornment, creamy, and wonderfully fulfilling.

As a kid, I remember eating egg salad sandwiches quite often. They’re perfect on a hot day when you still want a hearty meal. We’d load up our salad with mayo, yellow mustard and chopped celery for some crunch. Then pile it up on sliced bread.

This version elevates the salad just a bit, replacing mayo with almond cream aioli, yellow mustard is ditched for a more flavorful dijon mustard, and pepper flakes add a hint of heat. Make this for your kids, or bring it to your next cookout for a refreshing salad option.

The full wrap, complete with homemade balsamic refrigerator pickles!

Mayo-Free Egg Salad Wraps

Serves 4

  • 8 eggs
  • 2/3 C almond cream aioli
  • 4 tsp dijon or beer mustard
  • 6 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 10″ multigrain tortillas
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and shaved

Place eggs in a large pot and cover with water. Add about a teaspoon of salt. Cover with the lid and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat and let stand 15 minutes with the lid on.

Drain hot water and transfer the eggs into a bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking process. Let sit while you prepare the almond cream aioli.

Once the eggs have chilled thoroughly, about an hour, peel them and chop up in a mixing bowl. Add in the aioli, mustard, celery, and spices.

Peel your carrots and, using the same peeler, shave each carrot.

Serve egg salad by placing carrot shavings in the center of each tortilla. Top with 1/4 of the egg salad and repeat with all four.

    I love egg salad (and tuna, chicken, potato, really any creamy salad, haha). This looks really fabulous! I like that you added the pepper flakes for a little heat.

    I used to love egg salad. And deviled eggs, scrambled eggs, just about anything eggy. C’est la.vie. This does give me an idea for a vegan version though. 🙂

      I bet it could be made with pressed tofu! Actually, that would be really good… I’m going to have to try that.

    I love adding dijon mustard to my tuna salad, and I’m guessing it would taste just as wonderful in egg salad!

    I’m not a fan of mayo so I always avoid egg salad but this recipe looks perfect for me!

      Same for me! The Almond cream Aioli is soooo much better.

    I wonder if my husband would like this….if someone else made the aioli.

    I’ve never been a huge egg salad fan, but yours looks super delish. Almond cream aioli sounds really interesting as an alternative to mayo!
