This is good As written. The second time I made this I added celery seed and dill weed. I also used Red onion because I didn’t have green. I tripled the recipe and served it to the family with a side of tomato basil soup for a quick dinner. Everyone approved.

I made this using fresh eggs from our 4 yard hens. Instead of mayo I omitted the vinegar, used 1/2 the lemon juice and used Miracle whip. So good on home baked bread.

I increased the hard boiled eggs to six, so increased the other ingredients accordingly. Love the fresh addition of lemon juice to this egg salad! And especially loved the green onions! I'm usually a purist when it comes to egg salad, but this is how I'll make mine from now on. A definite keeper!

I was looking for a new twist on egg salad and this fit the bill! Will be serving this at our next brunch!

Love this egg salad!! The lemon juice adds just a bit of freshness and I love the tang from the mustard! Like "cynandtom", I used chives instead of green onions because that's what I had on hand. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. I will surely be making my egg salad like this from now on! Volunteer Field Editor

The only change I made was using chives rather than green onions because it’s what I had on hand. Really tasty egg salad!

This recipe is delicious as written- like deviled eggs chopped and spread on bread. The second time I made this, I added chopped celery and some sweet pickle relish - oh my! With these additional ingredients this has become my go-to egg salad recipe. In the summer when tomatoes are at their peak, I add them, otherwise I omit them. My favorite way to eat this is on rye toast. Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor
