    This was so good! Excellent flavors that go amazingly well. The only thing I did differently is use half Mayo/half Greek yogurt rather than low-fat Mayo (which I just don’t care for). I love it when you take a chance on a recipe and it turns out delicious and incredibly different. Thank you Anita!

    I have to have green olives and curry in my egg salad and found this recipe that has both. It has just the right proportions of everything. I threw everything in my food processor and pulsed till everything was mixed. It is so good. A definite keeper! BTW--I did everything as recipe directed except I didn't put it in pitas....put in croissants.

    I've tried to make egg salad sandwhiches many times before & it tasted like it was always missing something. We like the curry flavor & the pimentos give just a light amount of tang. Thanks for making a easy dinner a success!
