I love this egg salad's versatility - serve it on a nest of mixed greens, tucked into a sandwich or with your favorite crisp crackers. —Cynthia Kohlberg, Syracuse, Indiana

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Sub a 4-ounce jar of pimientos for the finely chopped pepper, and add 1/2 cup of finely grated sharp cheddar cheese for a heartier take on a Southern classic.
  • Freshen this recipe from your summer garden by using dill instead of (or in addition to) the parsley. Remember, dill packs quite a punch, so 2 teaspoons instead of 2 tablespoons should do it.

    "I'm sure it's good but can't use cream cheese in my family due to allergies, so mayo only please!"

    "Been making this recipe (without the peppers) for probably 30 yrs...my family has always only eaten this style. We also trade it up once in awhile with dill relish instead of the sweet.....better with the dill but always good."

    "Although I didn't have everything on hand to make this recipe in its entirety and I was only looking to make a single serving or so, I went with the base and it was DELICIOUS! I used 2 eggs, 1 tbsp whipped cream cheese, 1 tbsp light mayo, 1/8 tsp salt and several cracks of freshly ground pepper! YUMMO! With a bounty of leftover hard-boiled Easter eggs, I will definitely make this again and will be sure to try it with the rest of the ingredients to take it up a notch!"

    "My husband didn't like (and wouldn't eat) egg salad but he Really likes this! It was easy to prepare and quit tasty. I did add one finely chopped green onion for some extra zip, but otherwise - no changes. Due to his dietary restrictions, it is hard to find recipes that will fit into his eating plan. This is just the ticket. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!"

    "This recipe takes egg salad up a notch, although I had to make a couple substitutions and one addition, so this review may not be fair. I do not like sweet pickle relish, so in went my usual dill relish. Even though I did not have cream cheese on hand, its addition to egg salad intrigued me. I did have Top the Tater chive and onion sour cream and added that to mayo instead-plus a touch of mustard. I have never done that with egg salad before. I then added the celery, sweet pepper, and some additional onion. Oh, my goodness, nummy!"

    "Pretty good. Prepared as written, it lacked the flavor that I usually like in egg salad. We doctored it up with some added celery salt, toasted onion powder and a bit of mustard."
