Why is my egg salad wet?

kim shook | Nov 18, 2004 07:55 AM

I love deli egg salad. Nubby textured with no big hunks of egg, just really finely chopped up bits. And almost a dry consistancy - not really dry, but dry enough to scoop up with an ice cream scoop and hold it's shape, you know? MY egg salad, on the other hand is WET! I use hard boiled eggs, Miracle Whip, yellow mustard, salt and pepper. I try to keep it as dry as possible, but it becomes wetter and wetter as it sits. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Thank you so much!! Kim
