I love the combination of dijon mustard and hot sauce! This is the best egg salad I've ever made!

This is the classic salad. I get tired of the sweet pickle relish. That one I make for the kids. This one has a little kick that's a nice change.

Mayo and dry mustard with either chives or green onions are my favorite!!

I didn't put any celery in mine, used MiracleWhip instead of Mayo. It was delicious and a nice change in my husband's lunch. I will make this again for sure.

Add yellow mustard and cut back on the mayo. Even add some dill pickles cubes.
