Directions

  1. Put half a dozen eggs in a medium-sized saucepan and cover them with cool water. Make sure that the water reaches ½ – 1 inch above the eggs.
  2. Sprinkle the water with a dash of salt and cover saucepan with a lid.
  3. Bring the water into a boil over a medium or medium-high flame.
  4. Turn off your stove and let the eggs sit inside the saucepan for another 7 minutes. Do not take off the lid just yet.
  5. Take a bowl big enough to fit in the eggs and cover them again with ice water.
  6. Submerge the eggs into the cold water for another 3-5 minutes.
  7. Crack the eggs and put them into another medium-sized bowl.
  8. Add the mayonnaise or the Greek yoghurt for a healthier option. Alternatively, you can use 1 tbsp. of mayo and 1 tbsp. of the yoghurt.
  9. Mash the eggs with a fork and add seasonings.

TIME & Serving

  • If you want a salad without bread, prepare a bed of washed lettuce. Spoon the salad onto the lettuce and serve (makes 4 servings).
  • If you want the egg salad for a sandwich, toast 2 pieces of bread. Smear butter onto the bread and spoon the egg salad. Cut the sandwich in half and serve with your favourite beverage.
