"I had hard-boiled eggs leftover from Easter and I made this egg salad version. It's delicious! I don't keep dried minced onion so I chopped up a bit of a sweet onion and used it instead. I served it on potato rolls It was perfect. Definitely a keeper!"

"Made this exactly as written but I boiled the eggs slightly less... I followed the “bon appetite” guy who said to cook eggs 8 min to keep yolk golden and not crumbly. It turned out great. I kept eggs in a rough chop, not fine and used exact ingredients. Lemon juice was just what had been missing for years and years.. delish! I made this for tomorrow’s lunch, but I keep going back to taste and I’m worried there won’t be any left for lunch! Yum."

"Made exactly as written and very happy with the results. This blend of flavors with the bit of crunch from the celery is exactly what I was looking for AND it has my husband’s approval! I’m happy to have found this recipe and anticipate making it many times in the future."

"Simple old school perfection. I did as some others suggested and halved the lemon juice and used about 1/4 tsp celery seed in place of the chopped celery. Put it on brioche bread. Yum!"

"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."
