Egg Salad Deluxe (A low carb option to macaroni salad)

I threw mine together as I don't ever 'measure' dishes like this, but I can give a guesstimate to amounts.  Also: use what YOU like to substitute what you don't like.  Case in point: we love green olives in our macaroni salads and egg salads where a lot of people like pickle relish or diced dill pickles.  Some don't want pickles OR olives.  Cool.  Leave it out.  Onions? Celery? You choose. We like frozen green peas in our macaroni salad so they went into this deluxe egg salad as well as the bits of cheddar we love.  Play with your food... it's yours.  Make it your own.
