Happy to be the first to review this and tell you how interesting different and delicious this was - certainly not like yo mama's or my mama's egg salad. I really liked it! (Hubs not so much I'm afraid who thought it tasted weird. Something in it he couldn't put his finger on he said) I had no roasted red peppers but I did have pimiento-stuffed olives and red bell pepper. Actually I preferred that combo anyway because this was in need of some texture and crunch - which is why I also added green onion and celery. Just can't have egg salad without celery. I thought the curry might be too bold a presence but it proved to be very subtle. There wasn't enough mayonnaise in my view but I did like that it wasn't overly mayonnaise-y. Still it needed some creaminess and adding some heavy cream was the solution. I enjoyed the blend of all the ingredients but particularly the olives and capers. Yvonnelong this was some awesome good egg salad. Read More

I am a traditional egg salad type of person but since I love olives and capers I thought I would give this recipe a try. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was delicious. It was beautiful in appearance and had an excellent texture. For the red peppers I used roasted peppers from a jar. At first I thought I wouldn't need salt because of the olives and capers but it did need a touch. This is definitely a keeper of a recipe and will give variety to those days when a quick and tasty sandwich is in order. My thanks to yvonnelong - you are very creative. Read More

Definitely different. I like to put curry in my egg salad but this seemed to be missing something. I added more curry my husband though maybe more olives I thought maybe some dill pickle relish might perk it up. I liked that it wasn't sweet. Will probably try again with some dill pickle relish.

Oh WOW! This is amazing!! All the flavors I love and one bite! I made it exactly as written. I can t think of a thing that I would change! I m on a boiled egg diet and I m trying to add little things to make it more appealing. Without blowing it. This blew my mind and my taste buds! Read More

Loved it but I did add green onions because I felt it needed a little something. Read More
