HOW TO HARD BOIL EGGS:

It’s so easy! Simply place eggs in a large pot of cold water on the stove top and turn heat to high. Allow the water to come to a rolling boil and then immediately remove from heat and cover. Set a timer for 18 minutes. Drain eggs and place them in a cold water bath to stop the cooking process. Dry and place unpeeled eggs back in their carton or in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for about a week or peel and use immediately!

Instructions


Place your eggs in a large pot of cold water on the stovetop and turn heat to high. Allow water to come to a rolling boil and immediately remove it from heat. Cover and allow eggs to sit in the hot water for 18 minutes.
While your eggs cook, mince onion and celery. Chop dill.
Measure Greek yoghurt, mayonnaise, mustard and spices into a large mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Stir in your minced onion, celery and chopped dill.
Remove eggs from hot water and place them in a cold water bath to stop the cooking process. Allow them to sit in the cold water for about 10 minutes.
Peel and dice your hard boiled eggs and gently stir them into all other ingredients.
You can enjoy your egg salad immediately – I personally prefer to chill mine for 30 minutes first. You can eat egg salad on it's own, on a piece of toast, in a sandwich or wrap, or on a boat of romaine lettuce. The options are endless!

Tips

  • Smoked paprika: regular paprika will also work but I LOVE using smoked paprika in this recipe. It adds more depth and flavor!

    I don't see Mayonnaise listed in the recipe, but in the instruction's you say mix yogurt and mayonnaise. How much mayonnaise?

      Hi Shelley & Patricia. Yes it was at the very bottom! That is my error, though. It should be in order of use so I put it next to the Greek yoghurt in the list. Thanks for helping me make it clearer!
