It's no secret that I am not a very creative or skilled cook. Even though this is a really basic recipe and concept, I would not have been able to make something like this without a recipe. I do have trouble with "to taste" and ended up with too much salt and pepper. It still turned out well, and is a good basic recipe for when I have not much food in the house (no other ingredients to try fancier recipes).

Very good. I add alot of pepper and no salt. Sometimes I add lettuce and always make it as a sandwich. Thanks for posting!

Delicious!! I think the ground mustard is what makes it so good. The egg salad was nice and creamy! I doubled this easily. Such a zip to it! Thanks for such a simple way to make egg salad. This will be my "go to" recipe from now on!
