This is a fresh variation on an old classic. Egg salad is spiced up with fresh cilantro and mushrooms as well as the usual ingredients. Great for a spring or summertime meal, or just as lunch to take to work!

Wow this is awesome. Only thing I did different was I used onions instead of the mushrooms and used less mayo prolly 1/2 a cup or possibly even 1/4. Tastes so good especially if you like cilantro Read More

It was nice to try something new but I don't think I will make this one again soon. It did taste very "fresh" with both cilantro and celery in there. Not as much flavor as I'd like though. I love cilantro but I think I prefer a more traditional eggg salad. I used light mayo and no mushrooms. Read More

There was WAY too much going on in this recipe both flavor- and texture-wise. Sometimes less really is more. Read More

I really liked this salad. It is def. a step above boring egg salad. My cilantro came fresh from the garden so it really added a lot of flavor. I didn't have lime juice so I added 2 tsp. of lemon instead. I also left out the mushrooms. It was a little soupy but the flavor is exellent. Read More

Just made this... changed it alot though. Only used onion and none of the other veggies i also didn't use the mustard or the citrus juices. I just threw in lots of cilantro mayo salt pepper and couple dashes of hot sauce. I guess what i'm saying is this was a great starter recipe to play around with! Read More
