How to Make Egg Salad Recipe

I learned how to make an egg salad recipe many years ago. I found it is one of the easiest and most economical salads you can make when learning how to boil eggs. It is delicious served as a sandwich, on toast, croissants or bagels.


It is also good just served in a dish or with a green salad. It can be eaten any time of the day. Although egg salad can be kept in the refrigerator for a couple of days, I prefer to eat it as soon as it is made. I think it has a much better taste when very fresh.


Even something as simple to make as an egg salad, there are a wide range of ideas as to what should go into it and how the eggs are chopped. I prefer the eggs to be more coarsely chopped if I am using them on a sandwich or if it is to be eaten from a dish. For this I add chopped onion, chopped celery, relish and mayonnaise; I like to be able to see the eggs with the vegetables.


BOILING EGGS: Have eggs at room temperature. Bring a large kettle of water to boiling. Carefully put the eggs in the water with a large spoon. Reduce heat to medium and simmer eggs for 15 minutes. Set pan in sink and carefully dump out hot water but not the eggs. Immediately dump lots of ice over the eggs to cool them quickly. This process will make the eggs easy to peel.
