Nanny's egg salad secret was the addition of finely diced sweet pickles and a bit of the pickling juice. The eggs should be very finely chopped and the bread should be good-quality white. (Hold the lettuce.)
6 hard-cooked eggs
1/3 cup finely diced sweet onion
1/4 cup diced sweet pickle
2 tablespoons or more pickling juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Salt to taste
1/2 loaf (6 to 8 slices) good-quality white bread, such as pain de mie

Peel and finely dice the eggs (approximately 1/4 inch thick); place in a mixing bowl. Add the onion and pickle. Mix in 2 tablespoons of the pickling juice and the mayonnaise. Sprinkle in the parsley and blend the ingredients together until well mixed. Season with salt.

For every sandwich, spread 2 slices of bread with a little extra mayonnaise, place a goodly portion of egg salad on 1 slice, then cover it with the other. Following tradition, the sandwiches should be a little tricky to eat. Serve with salted potato chips.

Serving Size = 1/2 cup

No Problems With Instructions
I found no problems with the instructions for this recipe. It was complete and easy to follow. I believe the previous 2 reviewers did not read the entire recipe. It starts with a description, followed by the list of incredients and then the directions. This is similar to my Mom's egg salad and brings back many memories.
