Dilly Egg Salad

"I like to serve this sandwich filling on bread that has been spread with Dijon mustard topped with lettuce and cheese," writes Phyllis Jarvinen, Webster, North Carolina. "With a side of chips and a sliced apple, it's one of my favorite lunches."

    It's EGGs-actly what I was looking for! Perfect egg salad flavor. However, I used 6 eggs instead of 3, with the same amount of sauce. I also didn't have a celery rib, so I left that out. I really like the cottage cheese addition to cut back on the mayo flavor.
