First, follow our hard-boiled eggs tutorial to hard boil 8 large eggs. If you’ve just bought a dozen eggs specifically for this tuna egg salad, feel free to hard boil all 12 and keep 4 hard-boiled eggs on hand for breakfasts or snacks on the go throughout the week.

Once the eggs are done, transfer them into an ice water bath for around 10 minutes. This makes them easier to peel. Peel all 8 eggs. Then, chop them into small, bite-sized pieces and place them into a large bowl.
