Egg Salad is a delicious side that’s loved everywhere. So much so that there are a zillion, okay maybe not a zillion, but thousands of versions of the boiled egg salad everywhere. And just like everyone, we have our own gluten free egg salad. This is mom’s easy egg salad recipe using just a few ingredients. You can have it ready in less than 15 minutes, or 10 if you’re fast! And it’s as yummy as her boiled egg chilly fry.
Ingredients for the Boiled Egg Salad
All you need is Hard-boiled Eggs, cucumber, spring onions, green chilli, green pepper aka capsicum, mayonnaise, ground pepper and salt.
How to make the Boiled Egg Salad?
Start by boiling the eggs for 5 minutes. This will get them hard-boiled. If you prefer them a little softer, 3 minutes is good too.
Next, slice the boiled eggs into half cm thick rounds, or if you prefer chop the eggs in 1-centimeter-sized cubes. And chop the spring onions, green pepper (capsicum), and cucumber into small cubes of any size. We do some a centimeter big, some smaller. There’s no hard and fast rule for this; just do it however you like it.
The green chilli however, it’s best to chop super fine. We don’t want just one person getting all that spice, do we? No crying eyes here! If the chilies are chopped fine and mixed well, you won’t have just one person running for the cold water or milk.
Now leave a few boiled egg slices aside and throw everything else into your bowl. Next, add in the crushed pepper, salt, and mayo and mix together.
Decorate the bowl by layering the edges with the slices of boiled egg that you had left aside. And that’s it! This easy boiled egg salad is ready to serve.
It goes well with anything. You can also layer egg salad on toasted bread or stuff it between two slices of bread and enjoy as a sandwich! You can eat it as it is too, but it is rich and heavy. So preferably combine it with something else, or wrap it in a salad leaf, lettuce leaf, or tortilla wrap.
If you’re eating egg salad in the hot summer, make it ahead and store it in the refrigerator till you serve it! Cool and comforting! Yummy does it!
This is just one version of the egg salad. We often add just whatever is available to it. Other optional egg salad ingredients are onions, dill, chives, bacon, bits of boiled chicken, salami, chilli powder, or cherry tomatoes. If you think there’s another ingredient that will go well with mayo and eggs, just add it to your salad and try it out.
