  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 15minutes. Drain hot water, and run eggs under cold water to chill. Crack shells by rolling on the counter, and peel.
  2. Place eggs in the container of a food processor, and briefly pulse to chop. Transfer the eggs to a medium bowl, and stir in the mayonnaise, sour cream, Chinese mustard, celery, olives, and relish. Season with paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Taste, and adjust seasoning to your liking.

This was horrible -- I'm so sorry. I really looked forward to making this because I thought the outcome of the dish would be terrific. It had an odd taste that grossed me out!

VERY GOOD recipe. My sweetie is very finicky about his egg salad and he just scarfed down 2 sandwiches! Just make sure celery is "finely" chopped or it's a bit crunchy.

Sooooo good! I have been looking for a good egg salad recipe for a long time. This one is irresistible!

This is a great egg salad recipe! I couldn't stop eating it...yum! I had a hard time finding the Chinese hot mustard, so I substituted Plochman's Premium Spicy Peppa mustard. I omitted the ol...
