I adore devilled eggs. What I don't like about them though is the peeling of the eggs. 100 people have told me 100 different ways to boil and peel the perfect egg but rarely does it work well for me. However, it might be my lack of patience.
The beauty of egg salad is there is no need for perfectly peeled eggs. What I have here is all the flavor in an deviled egg but in the form of a salad. Not so neat perhaps but delicious. I think I enjoyed this more as I was able to use it as a dip with gluten free crackers.
So how do you boil and peel the perfect egg?
