  • 6 eggs, at least one week old
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/3 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of mayonnaise, homemade
  • 1/3 cup of parsley, fresh, chopped

Tip: Freshly laid eggs are difficult to peel, therefore use eggs that are 1-3 weeks old.

Improve the peel ability of fresh eggs: Bring fresh eggs in cold water with some salt in a pot to boiling point. When the eggs have cooked to your desired consistency, take them off the heat and let them cool down in the salt-water. After 20 to 30 minutes change the water to ice-cold water until they are completely cooled down. The result is easy to peel eggs.

Step by step:

  1. Boil six eggs in a pot then peel
  2. Dice the eggs and the onion with a knife, chop the parsley after putting everything into a small salad bowl season with pepper and salt.
  3. Add 1/3 of a cup of homemade mayonnaise (the recipe is just below).
  4. In the porcelain bowl, toss all of the ingredients together, and serve with serving spoons.
