Egg Salad With Olives and Celery

Start by hard boiling your eggs. I used three medium-sized eggs for this recipe, which was enough for two small sandwiches, or in this case, to use as an open-faced dip. I boiled for approximately 8 minutes on medium heat after the water came to a boil. Remove from heat, rinse with cool water, and as soon as the eggs are cool enough to handle, peel them.

Dice your celery and green olives. This is about 3 stalks of celery and about 12 olives. Set aside until needed.

Slice your eggs and then dump them into a mixing bowl. You do have an egg slicer, don’t you? This one is as old as the hills, but it gets the job done.
