This dish has been a true staple in diners and coffee shops. Now, you can make this deviled egg salad as a staple for your very own!
Step 1: Ingredients
Here's what you will need to make this twisted salad:
- packaged salad kit (I bought this one that has romaine lettuce / croutons / Parmesan cheese)
- other toppings: dressing / vegetables (not shown but optional)
Step 2: Egg Prep
First, hard boil the eggs in a pot of water for at least 10 minutes. Afterwards, crack the shells and peel them off. I recommend that you rinse the eggs in warm water, and cracking the shells with a spoon gently. Also, make sure that you rinse off any shells that might get on the eggs.
Step 3: Prep Yolks
Next, cut the eggs lengthwise.
Step 4: Add Other Ingredients
From there, use a spoon to transfer the yolks in another small bowl, and add the following:
- about 2 tbsp mayo
- 1.5 tsp mustard
- 1/8 tsp salt
- about 1 to 2 tbsp vinegar
Step 5: Refill Shells
Now, grab your spoon and scoop out the yolk mixture and refill each egg shell.
Step 6: Make a Bed of Lettuce
To make the salad, fill a large bowl with rinsed out lettuce.
Step 7: Arrange the Eggs
Grab your deviled eggs that you've made earlier and arrange them on your bed of lettuce.
Step 8: Finish Off
Finally, finish it off with any type of salad toppings you already have. I dressed up mine with croutons, Parmesan cheese, and ranch dressing. You can also add sliced tomatoes, onions, or whatever vegetables you have. I didn't have any of those, but that's an optional step that you can do to personalize your own deviled egg salad.
Step 9: Done!
This dish reminds me of going back to the good ol' days of snacking on this at diners and coffee shops. This staple with really make a great summertime meal or anytime that you want!
