Mustard. In this recipe, I used about a tablespoon of grain dijon mustard. You can also use yellow mustard as a replacement ingredient.
Chives. If you don't have chives on hand, feel free to use green onion.
Paprika. It's an optional ingredient. You can still make a good egg salad without it.

FAQ and Cooking Tips
Transfer the leftover egg salad as soon as possible to an air airtight container. Properly stored, the leftover can last 3-5 days in the fridge. Egg salad should be thrown away if left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature.
Yes, you can but it's not recommended because the ingredients in the mayonnaise separate during the freezing process.
