Egg salad is definitely a classic! The only thing missing from this is that little bit of zing that comes from adding a little bit of mustard, so I added 1 tsp. of dijon mustard and 1/2 tsp. of yellow mustard. That gave this that little kick this needed. Other than that it was perfect on toasted whole wheat bread.
This wasn't a bad egg salad recipe by any means but it wasn't my favorite. It tasted a little too much like mayonnaise for my likings. Next time I'll cut back on this and the lemon juice because it made it a little runny.
Good, reliable, basic egg salad recipe. Great recipe for beginner and experienced cooks alike. Lots of room for creative additions if you like but simply perfect as is. I love raw onion, but not so much a couple hours later (!) so I used green onion instead, which added a nice kick of flavor and color. I also added a smidge of ground mustard. Nothing not to like with this one.
Really simple, but really yummy. This recipe is going into my real life recipe notes.
Silly me. I used miced garlic instead of minced onion. Woops. Anyway, still tastes good. =) I added more mayo than suggested also added mustard. Used slightly less pepper too. Good recipe. Will keep!
I think it's good, but it felt like it was missing something so I added a tablespoon of mustard, about 1 1/2 cup of celery, and an extra egg. I made egg salad sandwiches. I also used lettuce leaves and tomato slices in the sandwich.
This is a delicious recipe! I added a tsp. each of dijon and yellow mustard as suggested by another user. I also did not have the fresh lemon, so I used about 1/2 the suggested juice from bottled lemon juice. Can't wait to fix this again.
If you don't have lemon juice, add a tsp. of the juice from your jar of sweet pickles! Or, add a tsp. of sweet pickle relish- it's fabulous!
