"I made this egg salad recipe today and really liked it. It reminded me of this little diner I used to go to when I worked downtown.. Very flavorful - I love the little crunch of the celery. I put it on toast with lettuce and little bit of mayo. Perfect way to use leftover Easter eggs."

"A nice basic recipe, which is exactly what I was looking for. Next time, I think I will use a little less lemon and a touch more pepper."

"This is a good basic egg salad recipe. I added one TBS of pickle relish, 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard and substituted a pinch of celery seed for the chopped celery as I don't like crunchy fillings. The sandwiches were good on toasted bread with iceberg lettuce."
