This deviled egg salad recipe is the perfect thing to add to your weekly meal prep. Store leftovers in an airtight container. Keep it in the refrigerator for up to three days.
After three days, the celery and green onions will soften because they will soak up the dressing.
Hard boiled eggs will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to seven days. I like to hard boil an entire dozen eggs and use them as quick snacks throughout the week.
Yes, you can freeze egg salad. But should you freeze egg salad? No, probably not. I don't recommend freezing it.
After eggs in the egg salad freeze and thaw again, they become tough and rubbery. This salad won't taste as appetizing if you try to freeze it.
