    Not Wet Egg Salad

    Source of Recipe

    My own, with help from folks at

    Recipe Introduction

    I love deli egg salad. Nubby textured with no big hunks of egg, just really finely chopped up bits. And almost a dry consistency not really dry, but dry enough to scoop up with an ice cream scoop and hold its shape. MY egg salad on the other hand has always been too wet. So I went to with an SOS. They gave me some pointers and low and behold I made perfect egg salad!

    List of Ingredients

    Basic Recipe:
    Hard boiled eggs
    Dukes Mayonnaise
    Hot sauce


    Here are the tricks

    1. Add salt at the point of eating not as you make the egg salad

    2. Dont use hot eggs. Chill them in the refrigerator before making the salad. Dont rinse the eggs off. Make sure they are very dry.

    3. Mayo, not Miracle Whip :(. And a TINY little amount!

    4. Mash eggs with potato masher, not a knife.
