In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Stir in eggs with a fork, chopping them into bite-sized pieces. Add green onion.

  • mAYO and Onion are still TB aren't they? I often add honey dijon mustard instead of just prepared mustard.

    By the way on my tuna salad, I like to chop up an egg in it and also put honey mustard. My husband can't have pickle so i add celery dried and then I add the pickle relish just in mine. If I don't have green onion, I would add regular onion in it chopped fine. I have only tasted one tuna salad I liked betterthan mine and it is at a restaurant near here. I am not sure if it is dill they add or if it is celery seed or what it is they add but it is lovely. Mine is similar to the one above.

  • OK guys so it was a TYPO, of course it's a tsp & not a TBS!! Lighten up!! This is a delicious recipe, & I disagree w/ Patrick, the small amount of prepared mustard, is much better than dry mustard, it's creamier & blends very well. The lemon juice is a tiny amount, tastes great either way, w/ or w/o. And I never ever heard a red lettuce leaf makes a sandwich smoother & tastier!! It adds CRUNCH, & a little bit of flavor, altho I prefer iceberg for crunchiest flavor. Seasonings

  • lose the lemon juice and prepared mustard, add 1/8 tsp dill, and 1 tsp dry mustard, for a smoother tastier sandwich, garnish with a red lettuce leaf.
