  2. Combine eggs, water chestnuts, mayonnaise, pickle relish, dry mustard, and paprika in a large bowl. Stir until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pretty good. The flavors are really good, and I love the crunch. If you don't like crunch in your egg salad, don't bother with this one. If you do, though, give this one a try. Very easy, too. I don't have pickle relish so I just used chopped bread and butter pickles, and I added some celery bc I like it in egg salad. Thanks for the recipe!

Wow. I am not an egg salad fan, but what else does one do with 5 dozen Easter eggs? This is worthy of a try. I didn't have the water chesnuts, but really wish I did. Instead, I substituted celery & red onion. I also used 1/2 mayo & 1/2 miracle whip. I only used 1/2 the mixture, as I prefer the eggs moist. Delicious on the 1st bite! I saved the leftover dressing in case I need to add more to the leftovers. Perfect way to use up some of that paprika my Dad brought me (the non-cooker) back from Hungary. Thanks Deb!

Didn't like it with the sweet pickle relish :-/

I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise and increased it to 1/2 c, which wasn't necessary. I used yellow mustard instead of dry mustard and 1/3 c green olives instead of relish.
