Nanny's Sweet Pickled Egg Salad
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 15m
1 1/2 cups (Serves 3)
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 good 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.
