Pretty good recipe however the sweet relish just didn't do it for me. Next time I'll use a savory relish. Didn't have any sour cream on hand so I just used a lite mayo. I used olives that were stuffed with jalapenos which added to the "kick". Thanks! Read More

I tried this recipe today with a reduced amount of eggs in preparation for the "after Easter" left over boiled eggs. I shared the sandwiches with a neighbor and we both loved it! We agreed that it had less of an "eggy taste" than most recipes. May be a little spicy for children but we adults need egg salad too! Sandwiches or served in a chilled scouped out tomato - or in any number of serving vehicles let your imagination guide you. Thanks I know a lot of us older children will appreciate this recipe.

I too tried to like this recipe but was very disappointed. It sounded tasty but in the end was very overwhelmed by the paprika. It was not even close to a normal egg salad recipe. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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 olives (since I hate nothing more than olives) and chopped up some Zinger pickles to use along with the pickle relish. I also LOVE eggs so I put another egg in mine and used Miracle Whip for the Mayo. Will definately make again!! Read More
