Great recipe! I cut it in half for two of us and "had" to squirt in a shot of mustard to get the normal yellow color I grew up with, but followed the rest as written and it's very, very good. Even halved it made a bunch, but we're going to enjoy every bit and will make again in the future. Thanks for sharing.

Made this over the week-end, so creamy and yummy. Made the recipe exact with the exception of used whipped cream cheese instead of from a block. Very recipe to cut in half. Thank you Cynthia for a nice change!

I made this for Mother’s Day. I loved it. My family, on the other hand, were not so impressed - they are use to having mustard in egg salad. I still gave it the 5 stars it deserves.

I made this egg salad after Easter to use up a plethora of hard boiled eggs and it was delicious! The cream cheese and sweet pickle relish is what sets it apart from the usual egg salad recipes. Very tasty and my family loved it!

I have always made mine like this, but instead of the chopped peppers and sweet pickle relish, I use red pepper relish instead. Best egg salad on the planet.

Very good! Left out the peppers and parsley. Just a personal preference. Have now made this many times. A keeper!!

I'm sure it's good but can't use cream cheese in my family due to allergies, so mayo only please!

Been making this recipe (without the peppers) for probably 30 yrs...my family has always only eaten this style. We also trade it up once in awhile with dill relish instead of the sweet.....better with the dill but always good.

Although I didn't have everything on hand to make this recipe in its entirety and I was only looking to make a single serving or so, I went with the base and it was DELICIOUS! I used 2 eggs, 1 tbsp whipped cream cheese, 1 tbsp light mayo, 1/8 tsp salt and several cracks of freshly ground pepper! YUMMO! With a bounty of leftover hard-boiled Easter eggs, I will definitely make this again and will be sure to try it with the rest of the ingredients to take it up a notch!
