How to Make Egg Salad


  1. Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover them with cool water by 1 inch. Slowly bring water to a boil over medium heat; when the water has reached a boil, cover and remove from heat. Let sit 12 minutes.

    Transfer eggs to a colander; place under cool running water to stop the cooking. Eggs can now be peeled.
  2. When eggs are cool:

    I use a grater and grate the eggs on the smallest holes. Will be a fine grate. You can smash them with a fork. I have also used my food processor.

    Add the next 8 ingredients, stir well. I then taste to see if spices need adjusting.
  3. Place in a covered container, and chill till ready to use.
