“This is a great egg salad recipe that a woman I babysat for made! The key ingredient is the chopped pimento stuffed olives. Serve on toasted bread with lettuce and a bit of chopped celery.”

I just made this and it is VERY GOOD. I made as first instructed and took a taste and found it a little bland, so I did as a few others instructed and put in some mustard. (I used Dijon and about 2 tsps. That made it much better!) The olives definately gave it that extra kick that my old recipe was missing! Loved using the potato masher! Made it so creamy. Served over lettuce instead of as sandwich, as I'm not a big bread fan! I will be making this again! Thanks!



If you like olives you'll love this egg salad. I leave out the paprika and add a small amount of yellow mustard(only about a teaspoon). I usually dispense with the celery too. But the lettuce is a must. Don't forget to salt and pepper to taste too. I am always a lot more generous with the olives too. I've been making egg and olive salad for years. It's my favorite. When there are non-olive lovers around you can always make your favorite egg salad recipe and then add sliced or chopped olives on the sandwich instead of mixing them into the salad. I used to get egg and olive sandwiches made in a restaurant this way. It tastes just as good.



I Love Egg Salad & I Love Olives but this recipe was terrible. Too much pepper & too much olive. I wasted all my eggs making a big batch of this. It was awful. I am sorry. I was so looking forward to liking it.
