“My mom’s concept of egg salad is to incorporate as much herbs as possible,” says Avery Ruzicka of Manresa Bread in Los Gatos and Los Altos, California, about her family’s bright, fresh recipe. For hard-cooked eggs with tender whites and moist yolks, she brings them to a boil in a pan covered with 1 inch water, lets them stand off the heat 7 minutes, then sets them in a bowl of ice water.
