Welcome to DC! I reworded your title and moved your post to a question forum.

I think you would need 6-7 eggs for your egg salad.

Am I missing something here? We need to know how many people are you feeding to suggest how many eggs you need.

Welcome to DC! You can add a bit of curry powder to up the flavor--although that might not work with relish. I don't usually use relish, but I do use curry powder often in egg salad. The # of eggs will depend on the size of the eggs you are using. I'd use high-quality mayo--maybe one with EVOO in it.

4 eggs is a cup. But you have to figure out how much mayo etc., you adding. If people on a special diet adding relish doesn't make sense to me. When I make es I add very little mayo, a lot less then many people.

An egg salad? Not had that. Egg salad for a sandwich? Yes. Add a few drops of yellow mustard.

I love egg salad sandwiches, or even the egg salad alone on a bed of lettuce.
I once made a huge amount of egg salad to make a bunch of little sandwiches for a gathering and while doing it I had a thought. I put down on the platter a layer of lettuce ( used butter lettuce as that what I was going to use in the sammys. Then put the egg salad on top. Put bread all around the salad. It was a big hit.
here is how I make mine , eggs, mayo, celery, green olives w/ pimentos, salt and pepper.

Just remember weather temps when take egg and mayo base items.

Suggestion:- One or one and a half eggs per diner if an accompaniment or 2 or 3 if it's the main part of the meal?

I usually hard boil a dozen eggs, add mayo & your favorite mustard to taste (it doesn't take much), and if needed a pinch of salt.

I serve egg salad as a sandwich with romaine or spinach and a slice of tomato on sourdough or rye bread. I've also eaten it as an actual salad on top of either romaine, spinach or spring greens with diced tomato, real crumbled bacon, and chopped green onion/scallion.

Now you've made me hungry for egg salad.
