To Store Egg Salad: Keep the egg salad tightly wrapped, or even better in a covered container. As delicious as egg salad is, it does give off a little bit of a funky egg smell, so if you want to avoid that just keep it tightly covered or wrapped. Before serving, give the egg salad a stir again to blend it all back together. This salad will stay fresh in your refrigerator for up to five days.
Make Easy To Peel Hard Boiled Eggs: If you don’t have the DASH rapid egg cooker (link in post), add eggs to a pot with cold water, bring to a boil and then cover the pot and remove from the heat. Let the eggs sit for 12 minutes and then drain and rinse with cold water.
