"The tang from the Dijon, freshness from the lemon, and liveliness when paired with watercress makes this recipe a MUST! This recipe tastes best when paired with wheat bread, watercress and avocado!! But I can eat it by itself"

  1. Place egg 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 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool and peel. For faster cooling, place the eggs in an ice bath before peeling.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, lemon juice and green onions. Chop the eggs into big chunks and mix gently with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

I used less lemon juice than what the recipe called for because it would have been too tangy for me to eat. I also found the recipe to be a bit bland so I added paprika, red pepper, diced red b...

Having never used or even heard of lemon juice in egg salad, I was curious enough to give it a try, but not adventurous enough to use the full amount. I probably used half what was called for an...

My husband loves this egg salad recipe! I wouldn't change a thing.

I used a quarter of a lemon - juice. and 8 eggs. I did add Cayenne pepper for a kick AMAZING EGG SALAD. PEOPLE DO NOT ADD HALF A LEMON JUICE THAT WILL KILL IT.
