My comments:

This is the second recipe I tried from the Egg Salad Contest from CBC Radio. I made a few modifications to the recipe and it was pretty good but not as good as the Curry Egg Salad. In fact, this tasted like a guacamole sandwich rather than an egg salad. The sunflower seeds was a real nice touch and add a bit of texture and flavour to the sandwich.

I don't recommend bringing this to work for lunch like I did. It gave me major guacamole breath and I was rather self-conscious around my co-workers. I tried swallowing the whole pack of mints but it didn't seem to help.

I don't think I will make this again because if I want to smell like guacamole, I'd rather just have guacamole because I LOVE guacamole with tortilla chips. However, this is different from the traditional egg salad sandwiches and I would suggest you at least try this recipe once.
