How To Make Deviled Egg Salad
If you love egg salads, you will adore this deviled egg salad version that combines the two favorite dishes into one nourishing salad recipe.
All you need to make this egg salad are:

Boiling The Eggs
First, fill a large saucepan with water. Bring water to a boil.
Place the fresh eggs in the boiling water.
Boil your eggs into a large saucepan filled with boiling water.
Boil for 15 minutes, then immediately cool down the eggs into an ice bath.
To do so, fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes. Or make my air fryer-boiled eggs recipe.
Then, peel the eggs under running cold tap water.
Place two eggs on a chopping board and slice them in half lengthwise.
Scoop out the egg yolks from these two eggs and set them aside in a small bowl. You will use this later in the devil dressing.
Roughly chop the remaining eggs and the two cooked egg whites from previous eggs.
Place the egg pieces into another large bowl.
Now, chop thinly celery, red bell pepper, and pickles, and place into the bowl with the chopped egg whites.
Preparing The Deviled Egg Salad Dressing
A deviled egg salad dressing is essentially an egg salad dressing but with some cooked egg yolk mixed in and a stronger touch of paprika.
All you need to make the paprika mayonnaise dressing are:

- Yolks from the two boiled eggs

Use a fork to mash the two cooked egg yolks.
Then, stir in the remaining dressing ingredients: mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, paprika, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, hot sauce, dill, and garlic.
Stir the yolk mixture well to bring everything together into a creamy dressing.
Pour the dressing onto the salad bowl.
Stir all the ingredients together until the dressing coat all the chopped eggs and chopped vegetables.
