"This was a wonderful egg salad. i was out of cayenne pepper, and can only imagine how much better that would have made this. Loved the lime and cilantro."

"Very good. The lime juice gave the egg salad a tart flavor that was unexpectedly good. Definitely make again when looking for something other than traditional egg salad."
