I had this on a toasted bagel and really enjoyed it. The garlic really comes through in this recipe. I halved this recipe and followed instructions as listed and I had enough letf over for a sandwich for my lunch. Great recipe, thanks for sharing. Made for KIttencal's Forum Recipe Tag Game.

Nothing ordinary about this egg salad! It's garlicky, and lemony and delicious! I didn't use the water; I didn't think it needed it. Loved the fresh parsley. It'd love to try fresh cilantro sometime. Thanx for posting this. Loved it!

I used the dark unhulled tahini which tended to dominate the egg.Next time I will use the lighter version. Still good with pita and other salad.

What a fabulous addition to an egg salad is the tahini! I found this much more flavoursome than the alternatives of mayonnaise or sour cream in most other egg salad recipes. Except for omitting the water, I made this exactly to the recipe, and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you, Engrossed, for sharing this superb - and as with all your recipes that I've made - so very different recipe! I'll be making this often during the summer months.

This was a terrific change from regular egg salad, the tahini was not overpowering but gave it an extra something special. I did add some minced green onions in it.

This didn't do anything for us. Sorry - I had high hopes. It needs something, but we're not sure what. I, like a previous commenter, missed the mayo and I really don't even like mayo. Made as listed.

Such a fresh, flavorful salad! I cut it in half, used Italian flat-leaf parsley, and minced the garlic. The salad is good on its own, though I loved it most on seaweed tamari brown rice crackers. This was a very nice main dish for many lunches for me. Thank you for this lovely recipe :)

This was nice, the tahini gives a nice creaminess to the dish, I think it still needs a little bite so would add chopped green onions if making again. Thanks Engrossed!

I added red onion to the salad. As shocking as this may sound, I missed the mayo. I think next time I would add a seasoning such as sumac or one of the regional herb/spice blends. Served over mixed greens. For N*A*M*E tag. cg
