Tips to make the best Egg salad:

  1. Chop the onions and cabbages first and add lime juice and keep it aside till you chop the other veggies. Lemon juice removes the pungent smell of the onion and cabbage.
  2. Try to cube the boiled eggs to medium size. If you cube it too small, the salad turns mushy as boiled egg is soft and easy to mash.
  3. If you feel that the salad is too dry, you can add mayonnaise or yogurt to give you a rich and smooth texture.
  4. If you want a creamy texture, you can add yogurt, cream cheese or even mayonnaise or any dressing of your choice. This creamy salad can also be used as a sandwich filling or pocket filling.
