This is the racket we used to dice eggs for our egg salad.
These dies are naturally non-toxic and made with fruit, herbs, and vegetables.

Tennis Racket Egg Salad

You won't believe how this one simple trick will change how you make egg salad forever.

Today I'm sharing one of my family's favorite recipes. We all love egg salad, but it's normally such a pain to peel and chop the eggs. Try my simple time-saving trick and enjoy the best egg salad ever!

This recipe is organic, high in protein and fiber, and Paleo-friendly. Made with just one ingredient, this colorful egg salad can be prepared and enjoyed by the entire family in just minutes.

Tennis Racket Egg Salad


Step 1. Assemble the supplies:

  • colored hard-boiled eggs (don't peel them--egg shells are loaded with nutritious calcium)
  • tennis racket

Step 2. Go outside.

Step 3. Select an egg.


Step 4. Hit your egg with force using your favorite tennis stroke.

  • Tyler chose a high toss and strong serve.


  • Shelly had shattering results with a Western grip forehand.


  • King-Man obliterated his egg with a two-handed backhand.


  • Grammy went for a blind volley.


The harder the hit, the better the egg spray. It may take some practice. But, once you master this technique, you'll be able to make egg salad in a fraction of the time that the traditional knife-diced method takes.


Oops alert! If your egg gets stuck, no worries. Gently tap the back of your tennis racket to help it through.


Step 5. Gather up the scattered bits and pieces of eggs.


Don't worry about the dirt. Pretty sure it's been sterilized from being exposed to the sun.


The irregular shapes and sizes and colorful shells give the egg salad an appealing rustic look. The bits of dirt add fiber and texture to the recipe.

  • This recipe is high in calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin, selenium and vitamin B12.

Step 6. Add garnishes of your choice. Moss and dried leaves make a lovely, contrasting finishing touch.


This recipe is an annual family tradition that I hope you like as much as we do. Honestly, it's a recipe any fool can make. Any April Fool, that is.

Make it a Yummy day!
