Recently I've become an egg salad convert. It started when I would go to the dining hall, and that would be the only appetizing option, so I'd make an egg salad sandwich. Finally I decided that I would make egg salad for myself, at home- why not? Have something tasty and delicious and also nutritious with which I can make a quick meal any time of day. I even make sandwiches and put them in a little tupperware and take them along with me if I'm in a hurry!
Here's on to the recipe and pictures...
|Here are the ingredients, minus the eggs.|
|Here are the eggs after boiling, in the cold-water bath.|
|And here are your peeled eggs, ready to mash!|
-6 or so hard-boiled eggs
-2+ tablespoons mayo
-tiny squeeze lemon or lime juice
-2-3 stalks celery, diced
-salt and pepper to taste
To hard boil the eggs, put them in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for about 9-10 minutes. Immediately put the eggs into a cold water and ice bath to stop the cooking.
Peel the eggs, then put them in a container with the mayo and juice and mash well (or to your desired texture). Mashing with a potato masher works great, or just a fork.
Add more mayo to adjust.
Stir in the diced celery, then season with salt and pepper.
|Here are your ingredients all ready to mash together.|
|And here's the finished salad. Not too appetizing looking by itself, but put it on a sandwich with lettuce and cheese and you're good to go!|
I hope you all enjoy!
