Boil the eggs

After about 10 minutes, you can peel the eggs easily.
  • Stove top method: Pour 2-3 cups of water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Slowly place the eggs into the water using a spoon and set a timer for 10 minutes. Then transfer the eggs into a bowl filled with ice water. After about 10 minutes, peel the eggs.
  • Chop the eggs into small pieces

Assemble the egg salad

  • Whisk together all the ingredients for the salad dressing.
  • Gently toss in the chopped eggs in the dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  • Serve as it is or on some soft bread topped with your favorite greens.

Notes

This recipe works great for meal-prep as well. If you plan on storing the egg salad for a few days, store the dressing and boiled eggs separately. Then chop the eggs and mix everything together right before serving/building the sandwich. The egg salad should stay well for a week if stored this way.
