"It's EGGs-actly what I was looking for! Perfect egg salad flavor. However, I used 6 eggs instead of 3, with the same amount of sauce. I also didn't have a celery rib, so I left that out. I really like the cottage cheese addition to cut back on the mayo flavor."

"EGGcelent!!! The cottage cheese makes it

so creamy. The dijon mustard gives it a hint of pazazz. The dill relish really adds a
nice sweetness to it."
