"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!"

"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."

"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 !"

"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."
