This is so good you won't be able to keep your spoon out of the bowl for a taste! ---it's great in a sandwich stuffed in a pita or scooped on a large lettuce leaf, I have served this many times for a luncheon get together and everyone loves it! --- the amounts listed are usually what I use for 8 eggs but the exact measurements do not really matter just use whatever you wish for the amount of eggs you make, I purchase the pimento-stuffed olives for this and I say the more you use the better! after slicing the olives make certain to hand-squeeze out as much of the moisture as possible --- plan ahead slightly the mixture needs to chill for a few hours before using.

Was well spiced on the cheap 5oz cans of Tuna that are half water from grocery store, but when I tried it on some 6oz cans of dense no added water expensive Tuna it was very much lacking. Next time I use the expensive tuna I will up all spices by 50% and try that. Very good flavor though. Really enjoyed it.

OMG BEST egg salad EVER!!!! Would give 10 stars if possible. The olives add such a BAM to the sandwich. Didn't do any of the hot sauce or cayenne pepper...didn't need it for me. This isn't my first recipe I have used of Kittencal's, she didn't let me down again. THANKS!!!

Count on Kittencal for another great recipe. I have 4 children 8 and under... I know how much time it can take to post a recipe. I thank Kittencal and so many others who are willing to help make the world of cooking better and easier for others.

This is a keeper that the kids love and great for eating on a budget. : )
