Zippy Egg Salad

"My favorite egg salad for sandwiches--I love it on whole wheat or egg bread with lots of fresh crisp lettuce. I adapted this from a friend's way of making egg salad. I use the same ingredients for both egg salad and deviled eggs--the only differences are the amounts and what I do with the eggs. Amounts are approximate--adjust them to suit your taste. Times are estimates and don't include time to boil and cool the eggs."

    I made 2 versions of this: one as written (with 2/3 of the Dijon - which was still plenty prominent) and a second one with wasabi instead of the horseradish. Both were good, but I preferred the wasabi one because of the kick.

    A wonderfully fragrant egg salad that boasts the *zippy* and is packed full of delicious flavors. I halved this easily and did reduce the mayonnaise to one tablespoon. The horseradish and the cayenne are a terrific addition to this. I mashed the yellow up a bit, and then added the white in as chunks. Just delightful and will continue to add these snazzy additions. Thanks Halcyon Eve! Made for *I Recommend* tag game. March 2009.

    This is a great and flavorful egg salad! We enjoyed the tang of the mustard and the bite of the horseradish and cayenne. Served as you suggested, on wheat bread with lettuce, along side a hot bowl of soup - this was a great quick meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!
