Try that and let me know if it works. This is all trial and error - we'll work on it!!
I have done that too, as the expired page says to do and it just keeps coming back to another page, sometimes the page I just posted, perhaps herein lies the problem. I will try to just log off and back on again I think it is with MSN. Does anyone else have the same problem. Thanks for helping kitchelelf.

For me, egg salad is a couple eggs, mashed in a bowl with a fork, about 1 T of minced onion, about 1 T minced celery, about 2 T mayo, sweet relish to taste, salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste.

I read somewhere (online) that putting them in ice water when they are done cooking prevents the green ring from forming around the yolk. ever since i started doing that, the yolks stay pure yellow.

Now, I'm in the mood for egg salad!

The "green ring" is a sign that the egg is overcooked. The sulfur in the egg yolk has moved from the yolk to the outside edge.

I find that make perfectly-cooked eggs, in a steamer or in boiling water, is 14 minutes, then dunk into ice-water. However, you can also go 13 minutes, and cover with ice. By the time the ice has melted into ice water, the carry-over cooking for the eggs has completely cooked the eggs.

It's all a matter of timing. If you steam/boil eggs for 18 minutes, then dunk them into ice water, you'll still get the "green ring", as they are overcooked.

I place room temp. eggs into cold water to cover by 1 inch. Then I bring the water to a boil, immediately remove the pot from the heat, cover and let stand for 20 mins. After 20 mins. I put eggs into ice water to cool them down and to avoid that nasty black/blue ring around the yolks.

I make my egg salad by adding Hellman's, a dab of yellow or dizon mustard\, minced onions and chopped olives. Delcious. Oh, yes, salt and pepper, too.

Hope you enjoy.. Any of the suggestions sound great.
