Reviews for Old-Fashioned Egg Salad
"Excellent recipe. Very easy. I liked the tang from the lemon juice. Note this recipe (prepared) can be used to make Mustard Potato Salad also on the TOH site. Easiest potato salad ever!"
"So good and easy to make! It tastes like there was so much more to it!"
"I added Rosemary and Thyme to it and doubled everything to make for a New Year's Eve celebration victory. Thank you to the creator of this recipe it was phenomenal."
"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."
"This is the best egg salad I've ever tasted. I followed the recipe. Will definitely make it again and again."
"Loved this recipe"
"Hubby asked me to make him some egg salad one night for dinner. I'm not a huge fan, but went looking for a good recipe. This one hit my fancy and even I like it ! I always go to ToH when looking for a good recipe. I never fail to find just what i'm looking for !"
"Added dill pickles. Love making this when I don't know what to have on a hot night. wonderful!"
"This is really good.I did cut back on the lemon juice and used celery seed instead of chopped celery. Then my husband suggested we throw in some chopped up fried bacon. Wow! We sure will make this agan."
"The best ever egg salad!"
"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."
"Made this egg salad over Easter weekend I added 1 tablespoon sugar to a doubled recipe."
"Also you can add about 1tsp. of mustard to the recipe."
"this is best served on toast with lettuce or even on a sandwich bun"
