  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 15minutes. Drain hot water, and run eggs under cold water to chill. Crack shells by rolling on the counter, and peel.
  2. Place eggs in the container of a food processor, and briefly pulse to chop. Transfer the eggs to a medium bowl, and stir in the mayonnaise, sour cream, Chinese mustard, celery, olives, and relish. Season with paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Taste, and adjust seasoning to your liking.

This is the best egg salad I have ever eaten. I prepared it yesterday for a club meeting and MB is right, everyone raved and wanted the recipe! I went exactly by the recipe, didn't change a thing. Will definitely make again and again. Thank you so much for sharing. Moss

Pretty good recipe, however, the sweet relish just didn't do it for me. Next time I'll use a savory relish. Didn't have any sour cream on hand, so I just used a lite mayo. I used olives that were stuffed with jalapenos which added to the "kick". Thanks!

I tried this recipe today with a reduced amount of eggs in preparation for the "after Easter" left over boiled eggs. I shared the sandwiches with a neighbor and we both loved it! We agreed that it had less of an "eggy taste" than most recipes. May be a little spicy for children, but we adults need egg salad too! Sandwiches or served in a chilled scouped out tomato - or in any number of serving vehicles, let your imagination guide you. Thanks, I know a lot of us older children will appreciate this recipe.

Needs a few more eggs, but a wonderful recipe overall.

I, too, tried to like this recipe but was very disappointed. It *sounded* tasty, but in the end was very overwhelmed by the paprika. It was not even close to a normal egg salad recipe.

This was horrible -- I'm so sorry. I really looked forward to making this because I thought the outcome of the dish would be terrific. It had an odd taste that grossed me out!

VERY GOOD recipe. My sweetie is very finicky about his egg salad and he just scarfed down 2 sandwiches! Just make sure celery is "finely" chopped or it's a bit crunchy.
