Very tasy egg salad! It's quick and simple to throw together, too. I love mustard, so the mustard flavor was fine for me, but if you're not a fan of musard, I'd say use half the amount listed. This makes a yummy sandwich. Thanx for sharing!

This is a good, basic, simple egg salad recipe. I was looking for one without relish, and this fit the bill. It was enjoyed by all, although it is a little bit bland. Thanks for sharing.

Egg salad sandwiches are one of my favorite comfort foods. Reminds me of my mother putting them in my lunch bag when I was little. As a kid, you know, you're a little embarrassed, but secretly I loved them. I really love this recipe. I also like the quick method of boiling eggs for egg salad! Who would of thought...only taking 2 min. to boil eggs! Thanks for sharing.
