Keto Egg Salad with Sardines!

0  comments

Sardine egg salad in a bowlIf you have read much at all on this website, you know I am a big salad eater and I like a good protein center on my salads, particularly a protein with very healthy fat attached to it. Enter eggs. Enter sardines. It’s a heavenly marriage in the salad world. I buy sardines packed in extra virgin olive oil and use that olive oil in the egg salad itself. Alternatively, you could use the oil as a base for your salad dressing.

Yes, I know, sardines are awfully fishy but the eggs cut the fishy taste out quite a bit and a good quality sardine is its own experience. It is not at all headed down the road of “cat food” as you may fear. We actually buy these exceptional non-fishy sardines that have really changed the way we think about them. Even my picky sons will eat them. Find them from our partner here. (We’ve been satisfied customers with them for a decade.)

Sardine Egg Salad Ingredients

  • 1 can of sardines, packed in extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (Check the carb content on the label.)

Sardine Egg Salad Steps

  1. Empty the sardine tin contents into a mixing bowl, including the oil itself. Do not drain.
  2. Add the eggs, onion, and garlic. Mix to blend the ingredients evenly.
  3. Stir in the mayonnaise. You may like a bit more or less so it is a good idea always to add mayonnaise in increments to get just the right amount to suit your tastes.
  4. Serve at room temperature to get more of the sardine flavor. Serve chilled to get less of it.

Store your leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

This is a go-to travel food for me. I bring along a romaine heart or two and a basic vinaigrette and I call it lunch!
