  2. When water starts to boil, take off burner, and let sit for 15 minutes Drain water.
  3. Tap the eggs on the counter when you are ready to peel, to break the shell, and under cold running water, peel the egg. This helps the shell to come off easier.

  5. Meanwhile, add the mayonnaise and mustard together, and mix well. Add to the eggs, along with the onion and olives. If using shrimp, add at this time as well.
  6. Salt and pepper, to taste. Mix all well, and chill. (Be careful with the salt, as the olives and shrimp are salty).
