I had never thought to add lemon juice to egg salad! What a good idea. Aside from tasting good, you don't need as much mayo as other recipes because the lemon juice thins out the dressing. I halved this recipe and used light mayo, 1 t Dijon (no yellow mustard), 1/4 t onion powder (used the last of the green onion last night!), 1/4 t dill, 1/4 t pepper, 1/4 t salt and 1 T lemon juice. It tasted good but next time I'm going to cut back the lemon juice to 1/2 T for half a recipe because it overwhelmed the egg flavor some. I will definitely make it again though and hopefully next time I will have green onions on hand. You could also try adding a little pickle juice or brine from green olives instead of lemon juice to make the mayo go a little farther and give it a flavor boost.
