For the hard boiled eggs:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil (large enough to accommodate all the eggs in a single layer).  As soon as the water boils, gently add the eggs. Set a timer for 9 minutes. Bring back to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. 
  • Meanwhile, set up a bowl of ice water large enough to accommodate all the eggs. When the eggs are done, use a slotted spoon to transfer the eggs to the bowl of ice water.  Let the eggs sit until cool, about 10-15 minutes. Drain and refrigerate until ready to use.  

For the egg salad:

  • Roughly chop all hardboiled eggs and place into a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together mayonnaise, dijon and fresh lemon juice until well combined.
  • Gently fold the dressing into the eggs, adding in celery, chives, and salt & pepper as you mix. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
