Start with Hard-Cooked Eggs

Chopping hard-boiled eggs

The secret to delicious egg salad is perfectly cooked eggs. Our secret? Arranging the eggs in a single layer, covering them with cold water, and heating them slowly. To peel an egg, gently tap it to crack the shell, then remove the shell. Rinse peeled eggs to remove any bits of shell.
