Keto Egg Salad Recipe

We love this keto egg salad recipe because it has all the flavors of a classic egg salad, but with an extra addition of ham for a heartier salad and savory flavor. Egg salad is a perfect item for meal planning because it has so many applications.

  • Spoon ham and egg salad into Keto deviled eggs, for a different twist on a low-carb favorite!
  • Spread ham and egg salad into a lettuce leaf and roll up, or add to a low-carb wrap with lettuce and onions.
  • Or scoop onto a bed of salad greens and top with sunflower seeds for a quick and energizing workday lunch.
  • We also like to fill celery stalks for a last-minute, nutritious keto snack or appetizer.

Whip up a double batch and find new ways to use it all week long!

Best Egg Salad Ingredients

EGGS – Hard boiled eggs are a great source of protein! The best eggs to use are free range or Omega-3 eggs, but any kind will do.

HAM – Make a baked ham for supper and use the leftovers in this delicious recipe. Or make a tasty crustless ham & cheese quiche

VEGGIES & SEASONINGS – Dill Pickles are chopped up and added to a creamy mixture of mayonnaise, mustard, salt & pepper, and sliced green onions for color.


  • Experiment with flavors by adding Dijon mustard, prepared horseradish, or some spicy sriracha.
  • Put a few Kalamata or green olives in the food processor and add to the mixture or use as a topping.
  • Add a few bacon bits or switch them out for the ham entirely. Or use bacon bits as a garnish when the salad is spread into celery sticks or stuffed cherry tomatoes.
