A great variation on the traditional egg salad! I made indian food last night and I was trying to find a way to use some of the spices I had purchased... this recipe fit the bill! I reccommend serving this on toasted pita bread with a sour cream spread. I may not make this often but it's a lot of fun trying different things! I left out the jalapeno and added a little chili powder for spice. Read More

If you're looking for a taste variation of egg salad this is a good recipe to try. I couldn't completely depart from the "traditional" egg salad sandwich though as I served this on fresh bread with lettuce and mayo. I did really like the fact that the onions were sauteed a bit as I don't care for raw onion in egg salad. Read More

I really liked this minus the cilantro. I love egg salad and this was just a little something different with a bit of spice. Read More

Sorry but this was awful. There are way too many conflicting flavors. Husband wouldn't touch it and he'll eat anything. Thanks anyway. Read More

I really wanted to love this because I love Indian food and sandwiches but as another reviewer said It was missing something. I left out the jalapenos (personal preference) but added some red pepper flakes instead. I added yogurt and mustard because I felt it needed some tang to balance the flavors. Read More

A nice variation on egg salad but it's missing something... We served in pita pockets with roasted red pepper hummus spread which really helped out. Read More

Good but I think I would use less jalepeno next time. It was a little much and tended to overpower the other flavors. Read More
