I even removed the relish, so there is no trace of vinegar at all! Here’s what I’ve come up with — and I’m super happy with the results!
In this recipe, I’ve opted for freshly cut dill, salt and pepper, paprika, and good old-fashioned mayonnaise to add flavor. If you’ve been on the hunt for deviled eggs with no vinegar, or deviled eggs without relish, you’ve come to the right place!

How to Make Deviled Eggs Without Vinegar
A full printable version of this recipe with ingredient measurements is available at the bottom of this post.
STEP ONE: Prepare the eggs either by boiling them or hard boiling the eggs in the air fryer. Slice your already peeled hard-boiled eggs in half. Place the yolks in a small bowl, and put the whites on a serving dish of your choice.
STEP TWO: Mash the yolks with a fork. Add the mayo and dill, then season with salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined. Make sure to taste the mixture and adjust the seasonings to your preference.
STEP THREE: Divide the filling evenly into the egg whites. Garnish your relish-free deviled eggs with paprika and a small sprig of dill, if desired. Cover the eggs, refrigerate until serving, and enjoy!
What Can I Use Instead of Vinegar in Deviled Eggs?
If you’re looking for deviled eggs without vinegar but still want a bit of that briny taste, I’ve got the perfect substitution for you!
My recipe calls for no pickles, vinegar, or relish.
However, for a bit of added flavor, you can try using pickle juice! Add just a little to start, taste, and keep adding until you get the tanginess you’re looking for.
How Do I Fix Lumpy Deviled Eggs?
When you prepare these deviled eggs with no relish recipe, the last thing you want is a lumpy filling! A quick and simple solution is to use a potato masher or a fork to thoroughly mash the cooked egg yolks.
Make sure to have a really crumbly consistency before adding any of the other ingredients. You’ll thank me later!
How Do I Keep Deviled Eggs From Getting Watery?
Perfectly hard-boiled eggs can be tricky. And, for this recipe, they really are the star of the show — so it’s essential to get them right! There’s nothing worse than biting into a mushy, squishy, and watery deviled egg.
The best solution I’ve come across for this issue is to start with a perfectly cooked hard-boiled egg. Start by covering your eggs with water in a small saucepan. Then, bring the pot to a boil. As soon as the water begins to bubble, remove your eggs from the heat, cover the pan with a lid, and set it to the side. Remove the eggs after 10 minutes and goodbye watery eggs!
How Long do Deviled Eggs Last?
It’s best to serve your deviled eggs with no relish immediately. However, if you want to prep the filling and then construct the eggs when you’re ready to enjoy them, you can do that too.
Cut the eggs in half and mix the filling ingredients together. Place the egg whites in an airtight container, and place the filling in a Ziplock bag. When you’re ready to assemble, simply cut a hole in the corner of the bag and fill your deviled eggs that way!
Deviled eggs will last for 4 days in the refrigerator. However, they are freshest when enjoyed within 2 days.
