Recipe with ingredients from our Market

In keeping with our “egg” theme this week, I found the following recipe.

The Best Egg Salad (from J. Kenji Lopez-Alt)

Why this recipe works:

  • Steaming eggs isthe best way to cook them for even cooking through to the core, and easy peeling.  See below for how to steam eggs.
  • Crushing the eggs with fresh mayonnaise by hand gives you a good mix of chunky and creamy textures. Scallions and celery add crisp freshness.
  • Fresh lemon juice adds brightness and acidity to the mix.

Serves 3 to 4, Active Time: 5 minutes, Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 6hard steamed eggs, chilled and peeled
  • 1/4 cuphomemade or store-bought mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon zest and 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup finely diced celery (about 1 small stalk)
  • 1/4 cup finely sliced scallions, white and pale green parts only (about 2 scallions)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Bread, lettuce, and thinly sliced radishes, for serving


Combine eggs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, scallions, and parsley in a medium bowl. Using your hands, squeeze eggs through your fingers, mixing contents of bowl until reduced to desired consistency; alternatively, smash and mix with a firm whisk. Season generously with salt and pepper. Serve with sliced radishes, lettuce, and bread to make sandwiches, or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

How to Steam Eggs

Add 1 inch of water to a large pot. Place steamer insert inside, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add eggs to steamer basket, cover, and continue cooking, 6 minutes for soft-boiled eggs or 12 minutes for hard-boiled. Serve immediately if serving hot.
