    Chunky Egg Salad


    1/4 cup Miracle Whip

    1 tablespoon cider vinegar

    1 teaspoon salt

    1/4 cup onion, minced

    1/2 teaspoon Worchestershire suace

    1 teaspoon prepared mustard

    1/4 teaspoon ground white or red pepper

    6 hard-cooked eggs

    1 cup celery, thinly sliced

    2 tablespoons green pepper, minced or red or green hamburger relish

    1 tomato, sliced or whole tomato

    Parsley, for garnish


    In medium bowl, stir Miracle Whip and vinegar, salt, onion, Worchestershire sauce, mustard and pepper until well mixed.

    Cut eggs into chunks or dice, as you prefer. Add eggs, celery, add green pepper or relish to Miracle Whip mixture. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate till well chilled.

    To Serve: Spoon mixture on tomato slices or into whole tomato. If using whole tomato, either cut off top and spoon out some of the middle, set on shredded lettuce and loosely fill with egg salad, or cut tomato into 8 wedges but do not cut all the way down, so that the tomato wedges will stay connected.


    Try serving this on rye bread, open faced, topped with shredded Swiss, American or mozzarella. Stick it under the broiler just until the cheese melts.

    Another unique idea is to top chopped, cooked, well-drained spinach or mashed potatoes, which have been mixed with vanilla yogurt, fresh ground black pepper and melted butter with the egg salad.

    i love egg salad sandwich

    it doesn't need mustard or sweet relish, i don't like those in egg salad

    i use the following

    boiled eggs (4 eggs) chopped and smash with a fork

    chopped onion and celery (2 slices onion and 1 stalk celery)

    mayo ( start with 2 tbsp can add more depends on your taste)

    salt and pepper (just enough to season)

    mix and let sit in fridge a couple of hours --- this makes it taste better

    Well, I'm a kosher dill pickle girl myself, but: 2 eggs, @ 1 TBSP mayo, @ 2 tsp relish & mustard, salt & pepper should do you. Oh, I like onions in mine, as well. And always start with about 1/2 the mayo you think you should use, then add some more if you think it is too dry once you've finished mixing everything in -- that way it won't be runny. Happy eating!

    6 large eggs

    1/4 cup mayonnaise

    1 tablespoon mustard

    salt and pepper



    Place eggs in a pot and add enough water to cover eggs by at least one inch.


    Quickly bring the water to a boil, then remove from heat and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 15 minutes.


    Remove eggs from hot water and immediately place them in a bowl filled with ice until they're cooled completely.


    Peel the cooled eggs and dice or mash them.


    Mix together mayonnaise and mustard; combine with the eggs.


    Add salt and pepper to taste.


    Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to combine

  • Sweet relish won't make it sweet. I add a tiny bit of yellow mustard and either seasoned or celery salt. And a little pepper.

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    A small amount of mustard along with the mayo. Salt, pepper, a little sweet relish or chopped up green olives. If you use the olives you might not need the salt. Or you could add tiny cut up pieces of ham.

    I like a little bit of dijon mustard and salt and pepper to taste. My boyfriend loves adding a bit of hot-sauce too. You can't really go wrong!
