Egg Salad – a Summertime Must!
I cannot wait for you to try this Egg Salad. It’s a favorite of mine during summer. I love how all of the ingredients come together and have so much flavor. This salad is a great salad to serve at a family gathering, a potluck or picnic. Just add all the ingredients together and mix with the mayo dressing right before serving!
How should I cut the ingredients?
The secret to this egg salad is the way you cut the ingredients. You want them all to be the same size. Everything may either be cubed or thinly sliced as I have in the step-by-step photos.
What kind of crab meat should I use for this crab salad?
Fresh crab meat is best, of course. However, canned crab meat or imitation crab meat may be used as well. 🙂
Can I substitute the dill?
Dill is one of my favorite herbs. (If you are not a fan of dill I am not sure we can be friends (just teasing)..). Dill is a favorite herb in the Ukrainian/Russian community. We really use it in just about everything. In this salad, dill is like the cherry on top of an ice cream. So, if you don’t want it, just leave herbs out completely.
What kind of corn should I use for the corn salad?
Fresh corn is best in any salad. However, if fresh corn is not in season, canned corn will do just fine. Just drain water before adding to the salad.
How to cook fresh corn for this salad?
Add corn and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook 8-10 minutes until desired tenderness is reached. Remove corn from water and COOL completely before adding to the salad.
