Mustard powder, dill weed, garlic powder, and onion flakes are combined in this amazing egg salad. I've always had rave reviews of this great sandwich salad. Best served chilled, on white or wheat bread.

I can't imagine that anyone would add dried onion flakes to a salad like this without hydrating the onions first. Seems like a lot of people did though. I boiled 8 large eggs grated 1/4 of a med onion (because I do like the flavor of onion) added 1/4 teas. onion salt instead of salt added 1 teas. lemon juice and cut the mayo to 1/2 cup. Outstanding egg salad. I hardly ever made egg salad but will make it more often now. Can't wait to share this with friends. Read More

Good but I made some changes based on the other reviews. Cut the mayo to 3/4 cup at least used 2 tsp prepared mustard and fresh onion chopped fine. Because it made so much I took the leftover added it along with 2 tsp of pickle relish to 2 leftover baked potatoes that I chopped up. Made great potato salad! Read More

Egg salad is one of those things that's pretty hard to mess up. Eggs mayo mustard dill relish salt and pepper - right? But when this gem of a recipe landed on my RSS feed I just knew I had to try it. I now have a new favorite way to make egg salad sandwiches. The mustard powder gives it that mustardy flavor without the extra vinegar that's present in prepared mustard. And the dill weed! Oh my - THAT is what sets this whole recipe apart. With a more intense dill flavor than regular dill relish it perfectly compliments the eggs and mayo. And since we love onions I finely chopped about 2 Tblsp. of fresh onion into my salad instead of the plain onion flakes (which can sometimes be more pungent than the "real" thing). Try this recipe - you won't be disappointed! Thanks Sara! Read More

Someone said there was something missing and I agree. The missing ingredient is paprika. Can't make egg salad without it. Other than that good recipe. Read More
