Preparation -- 10 minutes

Carefully place the eggs in a small pan and cover them with cold water. Bring the water to a boil on medium-high heat. When the water starts to boil, the time starts counting. 7 minutes until you've boiled the perfect eggs.

Immediately chill the eggs, the easiest way to do this is using ice water or running cold water. Meanwhile finely CHOP the fresh chives, you'll need about 1 tablespoon.

RINSE and chop the celery stalk as fine as you can.
