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

This is a wonderfully delicious recipe that I have made for decades...passed down from nana to mom and then me. Lemon juice and mustard are also great mixed with mayo for potato salad...FYI.

Love this simple and very tasty recipe. Only thing I did different is I doubled the recipe, and added 1 tablespoon of pickle relish for my sweetness.

This is a very good egg salad. The only thing I did differently was to add a little granulated sugar to it because my family likes their egg salad to have some sweetness to it.
