Over time, we realized that we enjoy our egg salad simple and with as few ingredients as possible. We add a little mayonnaise for moisture, celery for crunch, fresh herbs and a small amount of lemon juice to brighten things up.
What You Need to Know:
To make hard-cooked (hard-boiled) eggs, in a saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) of cold water, bring to a boil then immediately remove from heat and cover with lid. Let eggs stand, covered in the hot water for 12 minutes. Then plunge eggs into ice cold water to stop the cooking.
Saucepan, knife, bowl and measuring spoons.
1. Stir eggs, mayonnaise, celery, chives and lemon juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Notes and Tips
Egg salad is best eaten the same day as making.
