Chunky Egg Salad & Great Dressing

Made 2/6/2016 and “dressing” or sauce was great. Mary added finely chopped fresh cilantro. The dressing would surely be great over boiled shrimp.

12 large eggs

1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1 stalk celery (with leaves), chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
1 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Freshly ground black pepper


In a small bowl, soak the onions in cold water, for 15 minutes. Drain.

Cut eggs into quarters then cut the quarters in half.

In a large bowl, mix together the onion, celery, mayonnaise, dill, mustard, lemon juice, cilantro and salt.

Add the eggs to the mayonnaise mixture and gently mix them together. Season with pepper to taste. Use in sandwiches, with lettuce and tomatoes, or in a salad.
