I am not much help probably, but we love dills and olives so I typically add both and some onion.

try putting the celery in ice water. maybe that will perk 'em up. dill pickles sound great to me.

Yes! Try the pickles!

Thanks for your help, one recipe called for cucumbers, I wonder what would be better pickles or cukes?

I use dill relish all the time. I prefer it to sweet relish. You know, you could add anything for a bit of crunch. . .shredded carrot? Carrots are a tad sweet as well.

Actually, I do add minced homemade sweet pickles! I see no reason to leave out dill pickles, if you prefer them.

cucs, relish, pickles will all give you a bit of crunch, a bit of granny smith apple also tastes great in egg, tuna or potato salad. A radish or kohlorabi would also give it a crunchy texture

Got a can of sliced water chestnuts? Loads of crunch, very little question about redirecting the taste point, but gives you the texture you are looking for?

Try putting celery in water, it crisps it back up. Pickles are great in egg salad too! I hope this helps :)

I love pimento-stuffed green olives chopped up in it. You don't have to boil the eggs; you can just crack them into a well-sprayed glass dish, microwave @ 80%, stir, continue till done. (Don't beat them like scrambled) They come out like hard boiled but faster & no wasted water or heat...I know some people are anti-microwave, but if you aren't, this is a great alternative to the job of boiling eggs.

If you want to add celery and don't have it for egg salad then you can use celery salt or old bay which most have in the cabinet
