The classic flavor of deviled eggs turned into a packable salad. This Deviled Egg Salad is delicious and made with easy peel hard boiled eggs.
I would avoid making hard boiled eggs (and therefore deviled eggs) until I learned a method for easy peel eggs. Inevitably I would ruin the whites because the peel would stick so much on at least half the eggs. If you want to learn the simple secrets to making your egg shells neatly peel off, every time, no matter the age of your eggs – CLICK HERE. Once you have mastered hard boiling eggs, you’re going to be making a lot more egg salad. It’s one of my favorite things to keep in the fridge for a quick lunch. My egg salad has the classic flavor of a deviled egg – tangy and creamy with just a hint of sweetness.
