Dill Pickle Egg Salad

This DILL PICKLE EGG SALAD makes a great lunch that’s packed with that tangy pickle flavor we all love! This is perfect served in a lettuce wrap, rolled up in a low carb tortilla, or my favorite…as a sandwich on a chaffle! Either way, this makes a great low carb lunch that’s quick, simple, and full of flavor.

As a person that regularly buys 3 dozen eggs every week at the grocery store, I find it incredible that I used to hate eggs.

They freaked me out, if we’re being honest. 

But, I have gotten over all of my weird egg issues and now I eat them like it’s nobody’s business. 

Boiled eggs make a great snack, but have you even seen my collection of deviled egg recipes?

We’ve got avocado deviled eggs, keto deviled eggs, and fried deviled eggs.

But, sometimes you don’t want a snack…sometimes you want a sandwich and that’s where my dill pickle egg salad comes into play!

This egg salad recipe is divine, you guys! Loads of flavor thanks to the dill pickle, pickle juice, and fresh dill.

You’ll want to boil 6 eggs. You can do this by putting them in a pan with just enough water to cover the eggs and bringing that to a boil. Once the water boils, remove from the heat and cover the pan for 15 minutes. This is the traditional method and it works fine.

My favorite method, though, is to use the Instant Pot. It creates boiled eggs that peel like an absolute dream. The peels just slip right off the eggs. 

I put an inch of water in the pot, add the eggs, and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes with a 5 minute natural release. Then I pop the eggs in a bowl of ice water for 5 more minutes. Easy peasy!

Chop up your eggs and add them to a mixing bowl along with some mayonnaise, mustard, plenty of dill pickles, dill pickle juice, dill, and salt and pepper. 

This just gets stirred together and it’s ready to go!

You can eat this dill pickle egg salad with a fork, in a low carb tortilla, on a lettuce wrap, or between two chaffles.

How do you make a chaffle? 

ingredients for chaffles

A basic chaffle is just two ingredients: 1 large egg and 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella, but when making chaffles for buns I like to add a little almond flour or coconut flour and baking powder to bulk it up and give it more of a bread like texture.

You just whisk the ingredients together and then spoon half into your mini waffle maker and cook for 3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter and you have two perfectly sized waffles to double as buns for your sandwich!

I use the Dash Mini Waffle Maker

Yield 3 sandwiches
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


For the egg salad:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • ½ cup chopped dill pickles
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the chaffles:


To make the egg salad:

  1. Peel and chop the eggs into small pieces.
  2. Add the eggs to a mixing bowl along with the remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine.
  3. Eat immediately or store tightly covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To make the chaffles:

  1. Plug in the waffle iron to preheat.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, coconut flour, and baking powder. Stir in the mozzarella to combine.

  2. Top with the remaining chaffles and serve.


If you'd prefer to use almond flour in place of coconut flour, increase the amount to 3 tablespoons.

    This is my new egg salad fav! I’m not a fan of onions so the pickle adds a great crunch. Also, I wanted to add a little heat so I used zesty pickles and added some spices….amazing! I will be using this recipe for years now!

      Our grocery store always carries it with the rest of the fresh herbs, usually near the basil and rosemary. You could also use dried dill, but knock it down to around a teaspoon or so. 🙂
