"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 yello..." See morew mustard. That gave this that little kick this needed. Other than that it was perfect on toasted whole wheat bread."
"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..." See more 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."
