Recipe

Here is a near-perfect egg salad, which makes a classic sandwich filling for a summer's lunch. Good with salad greens or when served in lettuce cups as an appetizer.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 7 Mins

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 scallions, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 4 large eggs, hard boiled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Mix the mayonnaise, scallions, and chives in a small bowl.

2. Peel and slice the eggs. Add to the mayonnaise. Using a fork, mash the eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Notes

Cool the eggs rapidly after cooking, or a dark ring will form around the yolk. Peel the eggs in the cold water and the shells will slip off easily.
