How to make tzatziki egg salad
Tzatziki sauce is super easy to whip up. You can eat it immediately, but I suggest letting the flavors marinate in the fridge for an hour for even more flavor.
1. Prepare your tzatziki sauce. Mix all the Tzatziki sauce in a bowl and let the dip marinate in the fridge for an hour before making egg salad.
2. Prepare hard-boiled eggs. Peel eggs and chop them.
3. Add Tzatziki sauce to the egg mixture. Once you get the texture, you like to prepare and enjoy your sandwich!
What is the best method for boiling eggs?
1. add your eggs to a saucepan and fill the saucepan 1/2 way with water
2. Bring water to a boil on the stovetop over medium heat.
3. Let boil for 10-12 mins.
4. Immediately let the water out of the saucepan in the sink and fill the saucepan with the coldest water you can get out of your faucet. Adding cold water to the eggs after will make peeling eggs easier.
