Ok. This is my first review and I've been hesitant to place it because who am I to say...? Anyway, I had to comment on this one. If I'm going to use a recipe, I like to follow it exactly. This endeavor is difficult when the recipe reads, "1/2 lemon, juiced". I juiced half a lemon and, against my better judgement, added the full 3 + tablespoons it yeilded. My dressing was then so watery and SOOO tangy, making a very runny and tart egg salad. I guess I'm still confused why a recipe would call for so much lemon when it already calls for so much (vinegar-based) mayo. That's a lot of acid! I ended up adding 6 MORE eggs. In the extra time I had cooking my second batch of eggs, I ended up adding 3 tablespoons FINELY diced red bell pepper for color and crunch as well as 1 stalk FINELY diced celery stalk, 1 clove of garlic, minced and 1 large basil leaf THINLY sliced. In the end this made a DELICIOUS, not to mention cheap, lunch on whole wheat with baby spinach. Thanks!
