- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (or more to taste)
- 1 -2 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice

The perfectly updated egg salad! It adds the perfect crunch without resorting to the typical celery or asparagus remedies. I had oddly large jalape?os, so 1 fresh jalape?o to a dozen eggs was more than enough spice. I substituted dill for cilantro (what was available) and 1 tbl whole grain mustard plus 1 tbl dijon mustard for the yellow mustard. The best egg salad I've ever had!
I regret halving the recipe this is so good. I made it exactly as written and the combination of spices (I used a fresh jalapeno) and seasonings was utter perfection. This is my new egg salad recipe. The only tip I would give is to let it sit for a half hour in the fridge to meld the flavors.
No trouble putting this fine salad together! It all came together to total perfection, and it's a shame I didn't make more. This recipe really tastes terrific, even better the next day on some crackers. Thanks so much!
