Egg salad is a tricky thing, because so many people have different variations on what they like in it. That being said, I think this is a perfect base recipe to jump from for any starter cook. I usually just threw the basic mayo/mustard/spices in to taste without measurement and it came out differently each time. This gives me good consistency in acquiring my start mixture every time. I like the paprika.
Since I have basically used this as only a base, and it is decent on its own, I have made alterations to spice it up better to my tastes. Green pepper is not always available in my house, but dill pickles almost certainly are, so a 1/4 cup of chopped pickles gives the salad a good boost and a little crunch. I add a few shakes of celery seed when I don't have celery to add for flavor. Also a little finely chopped onion is a good addition at times as well.
