    Love the recipe. I did add a few green olives to the other ingredients which is the way my mom always made it. This makes a great sandwich for dinner with lettuce and a bowl of fresh blueberries and bananas for dessert.

    I always love egg salad and just made this. I've never put Dijon mustard or celery in it and gave this a whirl. I like the crunch the celery gives and the punch the mustard provides. Instead of mashing it with a fork, I roughly chopped then with a knife and used regular mayo since that's what I had on hand. I'll definitely be making it like this in the future.
