Egg salad is one of those funny dichotomies -- I love to eat it, but the idea of making it kind of grosses me out. Add pickles to the smell of it and we're really walking on thin shells. I survived the undertaking and got more adventurous, tossing in some finely chopped green olives, an inner rib of celery, a teaspoon of dijon mustard, and a pinch of freshly cracked pepper. Thanks for the recipe, and grazie for the starting line. Simple, versatile egg salad with a twist or two. Enjoy! Read More

I omitted the dill pickles and added a little bit of onion and mustard. This needs to be served as soon as it is made as it does become watery because of all the water in cucumbers. Next time I will try and set the cut cucumbers over a bowl overnight with a little salt to try and extract some of the liquid. Read More

Very good. It was refreshing. I love pickles in my food. I did make some changes which I think gave it added flavor and punch. I used light mayo and added 1/4 cup cilantro 1 cup baby shrimp a little lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Read More

Very good way to use extra cucumbers from the garden. Very light and interesting. Gives good crunch to ordinary egg salad plus less fat (used low-fat mayo too- picky husband couldn't tell). Read More

This is a good recipe however it seems a little runny/watery to me. I would love it if someone knew a good way to thicken the sauce up. Read More

This was a wonderful way to use up some of our bumper crop of cucumbers. It didn't sound great when I read it but we all loved it. I salted the cucumbers first to get some of the juice out of them. I rinsed them dried them and put it all together. It was pretty good and I will be making this recipe again. I added fresh ground pepper also to spice it up a bit. Read More
