Default Egg Salad

I love the stuff and make it all the time but getting tired of the same ingredients. I chop up fresh scallion, celery, mix with Mayo and fresh ground black pepper. What do you guys add to make it different? I tried it with mixing in some relish as a friend suggested but didn't care for it, that's all I tasted.

Did you use sweet relish or dill relish? We only use dill relish in all of our salads. Add a little garlic salt also. Instead of relish just dill goes well with it also. Also have seen people add shredded carrot.

Paprika and eggs, a perfect match!
You can also use Hot Hungarian paprika for a little kick or even smoked paprika for a different taste

Hard boil the eggs.
Peel them.
Cut in half.
Soak Wood chips for 30 minutes.
Put in a box or foil and on the grill.
Once the grill is smoking....Put eggs on the unlit side of the grill for about 30 minutes.


I have never made egg salad this way, put have made deviled eggs. They
are awesome.

Any of the following, though obviously not all at once. Celery seed. Tabasco. Crab meat, Smoked salmon, parsley, Worcestershire, smoke the eggs.
