Simple Egg Salad & the Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg

In order to make egg salad, one must first make hard boiled eggs. I always have people asking me how to do this (especially around Easter, lol). So here goes:

The Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg
Place the raw eggs in a sauce pan in one layer. Cover with room temperature tapwater. Place on the stovetop & turn the burner on high. Bring the water to a rapid boil & turn the heat off. Cover & leave for 10-12 minutes. Voila! Perfect, hard-boiled eggs.

Simple Egg Salad
  • 8 Hard-Boiled Eggs, peeled
  • 1 TBSp Mayo OR Vanilla yogurt
  • 2 TBSp dijon mustard
  • 1 TBSp fresh, chopped dill
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Chopped Celery
  • Chopped Red Onion- *Optional
Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Use a potato masher to combine then a fork to mix. 

Serve on lettuce as a great side salad for a bbq (being careful of refrigeration because of the mayo!) or on bread as a sandwich.

*Lishie tip- You can always switch out fresh herbs for dried, just use less since the dried is concentrated. 1 TBSp fresh dill= 1 tsp dried dill.
