"This is a fresh variation on an old classic. Egg salad is spiced up with fresh cilantro and mushrooms as well as the usual ingredients. Great for a spring or summertime meal, or just as lunch to take to work!"

hard-cooked eggs, finely chopped
chopped fresh cilantro
celery rib, finely diced
fresh mushrooms, finely diced
salt and pepper to taste
I didn't have mushroooms so used onion and it was very tasty.
It was nice to try something new, but I don't think I will make this one again soon. It did taste very "fresh", with both cilantro and celery in there. Not as much flavor as I'd like though. I love cilantro, but I think I prefer a more traditional eggg salad. I used light mayo and no mushrooms.
Wow this is awesome. Only thing I did different was I used onions instead of the mushrooms and used less mayo, prolly 1/2 a cup or possibly even 1/4. Tastes so good, especially if you like cilantro
There was WAY too much going on in this recipe, both flavor- and texture-wise. Sometimes less really is more.
Fantastic! Just like another reviewer, I used chopped onion instead of mushrooms. Can't wait to share this with friends and family!
I really liked this salad. It is def. a step above boring egg salad. My cilantro came fresh from the garden so it really added a lot of flavor. I didn't have lime juice so I added 2 tsp. of lemon instead. I also left out the mushrooms. It was a little soupy but the flavor is exellent.
Just made this... changed it alot though. Only used onion and none of the other veggies, i also didn't use the mustard or the citrus juices. I just threw in lots of cilantro, mayo, salt, pepper, and couple dashes of hot sauce. I guess what i'm saying is this was a great starter recipe to play around with!
Loved it! Used less mayo and subbed red onion for the mushrooms as I don't like mushrooms. Ate it on a croissant. Excellent...will definitely make again!
