Egg salad with edge…

Sriracha sauce provides a bold twist to traditional egg salad here, adding not only heat but also a slightly sweet-garlicky undertone to the salad as well. And like any egg salad, it’s very simple to make.

If you want things even spicier, of course you can up the amount of Sriracha (try doubling it). But also consider using jalapeño peppers instead of bell peppers in the recipe. Sriracha is made from red jalapeños, so the flavor pairing works – green jalapeños providing a brighter bite, while red jalapeños (or Fresno peppers) a slightly smokier and sweeter flavor.

  • In a bowl, mix all ingredients, then add salt and pepper to taste.
  • For best flavor, refrigerate the egg salad for 30 minutes to one hour to allow flavors to meld.


Want more spice? Add an additional tablespoon of Sriracha or swap in diced jalapeño peppers instead of diced bell peppers.
