"Another delicious find from Australian Eggs. This salad make for a delicious sanger, especially when made with fresh bread. Kewpie mayonnaise is a product from Japan, and takes this salad to a different taste level. Kewpie has a rich and creamy texture and is made from egg yolks and a unique blend of vinegars, this style mayonnaise seems to add a wonderful "unami" depth of flavor to this salad. Note: If you cannot get Kewpie mayonnaise, you can substitute with standard whole egg mayonnaise."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Boil the eggs using your preferred method. Alternatively, you can follow these steps: Fill a saucepan halfway with cold water and gently place the eggs into the pan. Heat the pan over medium heat. Once the water reaches a simmer, set the timer for 8 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the water. Cool the eggs by running them under cold water for 30-60 seconds or by placing them in a bowl of iced water.

Step 2

Peel the eggs and transfer them to a chopping board. Coarsely chop the eggs using a sharp knife.

Step 3

Transfer the chopped eggs to a bowl and add the mayonnaise, wasabi paste, milk, salt, sugar, and half of the chopped chives. Mix well.

Step 4

Sprinkle the remaining chives over the egg mixture before serving.

I love kewpie mayonnaise...I barely had enough wasabi paste...the two mixed together gave the egg salad a wonderful flavor...I did find it was on the salty side so next time I'm going to cut back on it...I served it with bib lettuce for a tasty lunch...made for "Billboard" tag game...
