I was challenged to an Egg Salad "Cook Off" by another Zaar chef. So here is my recipe. It's a little saucy so if you want it less saucy just add less of the Mayo and olive juice. You can eat this on crackers or as a sandwich. It's very easy to make. Since olive juice has salt in it, I did not add more salt to the recipe. I have a sensitivity to pepper so I did not add that either. You can add both if you want to. Prep time includes the time for boiling the eggs. Cook time is refrigeration time. Times are approximate.

I love egg salad and am always looking for new ways/tastes of making it. This was indeed with a twist, the horseradish was very nice, gave it just that little zing. Made it just as stated and would perhaps even add a little more horseradish next time. Made for PAC Spring '08. Thanks for posting.

This was an ok egg salad. It had a different taste from the horseradish and olives, but it just seemed to be missing something to us.

I loved the green olives, their juice, and the horseradish -- flavors I would never have paired in a million years on my own! I will be serving this regularly on crackers or lightly toasted bread slices for a sandwich. Thanks, AuntWoofieWoof! Made for Beverage Tag game.
