Post 'em if you got them. I was recently looking for a good egg salad recipe to try out. I researched and discovered some interesting ingredients.

Here are some of the more interesting ones:

Chopped Green Olives
Lemon juice
Bacon pieces

I'd like to try all variations.

Try Blue Cheese.
Or Tabasco sauce.

California Egg Commission (now defunct) had a recipe for a peanut butter and jelly egg salad. But heck if I can find it now!

Sometimes we throw in green olives and chopped sweet gerkhins.

Dill in egg salad is fantastic!!!!! I started doing that a few months ago. I hard boil 6 eggs, cool.. de-shell, chop 'em.. add 1/2 cup mayo and sprinkle in some celery salt (I would prefer real celery, but husband doesn't like it) and some dried dill. It really gives it a unique taste. Very simple to make, but very good!

Default Avocado egg salad

With avocados in season and plentiful right now, I made this the other day which is simply delicious and can be used as a sandwich filler, a spread or a dip.

Scoop out the pulp of one large avocado and coarsely chop. Coarsely chop two hard boiled eggs. Combine, add mayo to bind, some capers, black pepper and cumin to taste, refrigerate to chill.

Very simple. Enjoy!

Default Don't know why I didn't think of it sooner? Deviled Egg Salad

I have never heard of this, but then I don't get around much. I was about to make the same old egg salad recipe for lunch, and I had an epiphany. Since everyone loves deviled eggs, why not make the egg salad with the ingredients in deviled eggs? Duh.
I guess it depends upon how you make your deviled eggs, but mine are nothing like plain egg salad.

I don't measure but...
6 boiled eggs, chopped
1 large plop of sweet relish (1/4c?)
1 large plop of mayo (1/4c?)
salt & pepper
2-4 T ketchup
1 t. dry mustard
dash Tabasco

Adjust the ketchup to taste. It becomes kind of a Thousand Island or Crab Louis sauce.

Egg salad and deviled eggs don't provide the same eating experience. Both the taste and feel in the mouth are different. I tried it once; never again.

I don't eat sweet deviled eggs. Here's my recipe for Deviled Eggs Pomona, my own recipe.

12 relatively soft hard cooked eggs
6 dashes Tabasco (original)
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp Grey Poupon Mustard
Hellman's or Best Foods or homemade mayo

Slice eggs and transfer yolks to a small bowl. Add Tabasco, vinegar, and mustard; blend until smooth. Then add salt and mayo in alternating small amounts until reaching correct taste and texture. This recipe assumes the use of extra large eggs. If you're using different or unsized eggs you'll need to adjust the number. The apple cider vinegar imparts a delightful hint of smokiness.

There's a reason I call this dish Pomona; does anyone know what it is? If you don't see it you'll kick yourself when I supply the answer. Hint: it has nothing to do with the city of that name.

I've made deviled eggs using all sorts of ingredients; these are the best.

Pomona is the harvest goddess associated with apples.

Re: the recipes, I don't ever use sweet things in deviled eggs. My deviled eggs are very much like my egg salad.
