Curried Egg Salad – Eiersalat mit Curry

Posted on | March 27, 2013 | 5 Comments

What would Easter be without eggs. But instead of making my usual recipe for egg salad I decided to try a different recipe this time. Thin apple slices give this salad extra crunch and freshness. I loved the contrast of textures in this dish. The dressing is made by using half yoghurt and half mayonnaise and seasoned with curry. It is a very tasty combination. Curry and eggs go very well together. I first tried this egg and curry combination when I made South African Curried Eggs which is an incredible delicious dish.

Add this salad to your Easter breakfast or brunch, or make it with leftover Easter eggs, or make it any other day of the year. Served with fresh bread and a salad, this even makes a perfect light meal.

Curried Eggsalad


  • 4-5 eggs, hard boiled and peeled
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • salt, pepper, sugar
  • 1-2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 small apples
  • 2 spring onions, cut into thin slices
  • chiliflakes


Combine the yoghurt, mayonnaise, and the curry powder. Season to taste with a little bit of sugar as well as salt and pepper.

Quarter the apples, core them, and then cut them into thin slices. Mix them with the mayonnaise dressing.

Cut the eggs into quarters and arrange them on plates or in bowls. Then top the eggs with the apple-mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle the spring onions and some chiliflakes over the salad.

Serve with fresh bread. Guten Appetit!

    Love this! I made curried deviled eggs last year and I was amazed at how well they turned out. I’d love to try your curried egg salad on a bed of greens or on a toasty roll. Looks beautiful, dear!
