Enjoyable lunch served inside a medium-size tomato with pulp scooped out. That little bit of dry mustard gives this a tang.

Best egg salad recipe I've tried. Delicious. I cant be bothered to finely dice eggs....used a potato masher :-) Worked great.

Had to substitute finely diced onion didn't have scallions. Really like this salad with crackers

This was a very nice lunch with some nice summer tomatoes, and a good egg salad. You could change for your liking easily,

I was looking for a recipe with pickles, and I followed it as written. It was bland, good but bland.
