Simple Egg Salad

I know... egg salad? Probably haven't eaten it since you were a kid but this is a great way to get rid of those extra hard boiled eggs you have! There are only five ingredients... mostly due to my lack of a spice pantry, but you needn't worry. This has plenty of flavor!

FIRST: How to hard boil an egg

I prefer the cold water method which goes like this:

Put X number of eggs in a medium saucepan.
Fill the saucepan up with cold water, until it reaches an inch or so above the eggs.
Boil the water until it is a rolling boil.
Pull off the head and put a lid on it (feel free to listen to Squirrel Nut Zippers).
Wait 22-24 minutes.
Get the eggs out of the saucepan immediately and into a bowl of cold water to prevent further cooking.

SECOND: A smashing good time

-4 hard boiled eggs, quartered or diced coarsely
-1 small red onion (or half a medium), diced (or less if you aren't an onion lover)
-1 1/2 tablespoons gluten-free ranch dressing, like Kraft (eyeball it)
-Garlic salt to taste (start with 2 teaspoons or so)
-2 or more dashes of crushed red pepper

Put all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Using a fork, smash the eggs and mix it up! Give it a taste. If it is too dry, add some more ranch.

Makes 2 Servings

I put it on some gluten free toast (Glutino's Corn Harvest) but it would be great on a bed of lettuce!

(I apologize for the lack of a picture, but my camera just wasn't at my side quick enough!)
