    Something else. Try This! Use 3 heaping tablespoons of mayo, 1 heaping tablespoon of mustard (any type), omit onion and save paprika for sprinkling on the sandwich when serving. I like it served on toast. Not a bad recipe when modified a little. I was so glad to find a ratio of eggs to other ingredients here. It sure beats just trying to work magic at the kitchen counter!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. I made this 2 ways - one your way without the onions and my husband really liked it. The second way I added 3 tablespoons mayo and 1 celery stalk chopped up very fine, 4 gherkin pickles chopped fine, 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard and 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon dill, 1/2 teaspoon english mustard and a sprinkle of black pepper. My husband loved it and my kids loved it as well. I mixed it in with pasta for the little ones.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. This is a good egg mayo recipe as is if you're looking for a recipe that isn't too wet. I prefer mine with a little more mayo so I made some alternations. I added more onion and used white instead of red because it is what I had, chopped 2 ribs of celery for a little more crunch and added a few more tablespoons of mayo. I cut the eggs in large chunks and then squished it with a fork some, still chunky. I don't care if it is pink from the paprika, this salad is wonderful! Thank you for sharing.  -  08 Oct 2008
