"I have to have green olives and curry in my egg salad and found this recipe that has both. It has just the right proportions of everything. I threw everything in my food processor and pulsed till everything was mixed. It is so good. A definite keeper! BTW--I did everything as recipe directed except I didn't put it in pitas....put in croissants."

"I've tried to make egg salad sandwhiches many times before & it tasted like it was always missing something. We like the curry flavor & the pimentos give just a light amount of tang. Thanks for making a easy dinner a success!"
