I can't imagine that anyone would add dried onion flakes to a salad like this without hydrating the onions first. Seems like a lot of people did though. I boiled 8 large eggs, grated 1/4 of a med onion, (because I do like the flavor of onion), added 1/4 teas. onion salt instead of salt, added 1 teas. lemon juice and cut the mayo to 1/2 cup. Outstanding egg salad. I hardly ever made egg salad but will make it more often now. Can't wait to share this with friends.

Good, but I made some changes based on the other reviews. Cut the mayo to 3/4 cup at least, used 2 tsp prepared mustard, and fresh onion chopped fine. Because it made so much, I took the leftover added it along with 2 tsp of pickle relish to 2 leftover baked potatoes that I chopped up. Made great potato salad!

Egg salad is one of those things that's pretty hard to mess up. Eggs, mayo, mustard, dill relish, salt and pepper - right? But when this gem of a recipe landed on my RSS feed, I just *knew* I had to try it. I now have a new favorite way to make egg salad sandwiches. The mustard powder gives it that mustardy flavor without the extra vinegar that's present in prepared mustard. And the dill weed! Oh my - THAT is what sets this whole recipe apart. With a more intense dill flavor than regular dill relish, it perfectly compliments the eggs and mayo. And, since we love onions, I finely chopped about 2 Tblsp. of fresh onion into my salad instead of the plain onion flakes (which can sometimes be more pungent than the "real" thing). Try this recipe - you won't be disappointed! Thanks, Sara!

Someone said there was something missing and I agree. The missing ingredient is paprika. Can't make egg salad without it. Other than that, good recipe.

very good,instead of a full cup of mayo,i used 1/2mayo and 1/2 miracle whip,and i added 1/4 cup of finely chopped celery and green onion,I also used a potato masher to mash up the eggs worked fast and sufficiently!! "DE-LISHY-OH -SO"!!!

Delicious! This will be my favorite recipe for egg salad. Followed the recipe exactly except I did'nt have any onion flakes so I used fresh chopped onion.

This was a very good egg salad. I used minced onions instead of the dried onion flakes & I served it on a honey wheat bread w/ leaf lettuce & a slice of havarti cheese. Yumm!
