- Kirk Mar 6, 2006 02:41 PM
I am jonesing for New York deli-style egg salad (on rye). Dallas, unfortunately, doesn't know from egg salad, and I would love to make some at home. Any favorite recipes out there?
To show you how important we Chowhounds view each others culinary passions, I have perused the following books...
The Brooklyn Cookbook
New York City Food
The New York Cookbook
DELI ...101 New York Style deli dishes
Silver Palate Cookbook
The last 2 had recipes...
Sydney's Egg salad from a transplanted New Yorker in Atlanta...Shalom Y'all (I don't remember getting egg salad like this in Ny)
chop 12 hard boiled eggs with
1 1/2 cups Mayo
1 heaping teaspoon grated ginger (!)
salt pepper to taste
2Tbls. fresh chopped parsley
1 small onion minced
1/2 cup Greek black olives pitted and chopped..........mix together
From Silver Palate...(this feels more like the real thing)"..it makes a zesty sandwich especially when served on black bread...."
