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

"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."

"The addition of cream cheese in this classic salad really makes a big difference. As a field editor I rate this recipe a 5-star winner."
