I am looking for an egg salad recipe. My grandmother, now deceased, made the best egg salad sandwich and of course, it was not written down anywhere. I seem to recall thinking that several other Seventh Day Adventist woman made it the same way. I don't know if it was in a book somewhere, possibly "Apple a Day".
My grandmother lived in Angwin, in Northern California. This recipe is not swimming in Mayo like most are these days and everything was chopped the same size. The consistency was thick and slightly dry. Sometimes she would put olives in it. If anyone has such a recipe written down or has it memorized I would really appreciate it. Thank you,

She might have put something with a flavor accent (like dill or celery seed) in it. Check out Rachael Ray's recipes. She has proclaimed that she doesn't care for mayo, so she uses olive oil. Even searching for tuna salad recipes might give you a clue.
6 eggs boiled
1/2 small onion chopped very fine
1/2 stalk celery chopped very fine
1 tsp sweet pickle relish
Boil eggs, peel in cold water
In a bowl mash eggs well
add onions an celery an relish

If it was a Seventh Day Adventist recipe, I doubt that it had eggs in it -- uless they have changed and become more liberal in their diet over the years. We had several Seventh Day Adventists living in our neighborhood near Loma Linda, California and none of them ate animal products. Their egg salad sandwiches were made with Tofu.
I was raised a Seventh day Adventist I am now 74 years and and have always used Egg and Milk products that was the way our family did, however the change to a Vegan seem that there are many people that are going that way, I personally do not think it is a complete diet to live by. I believe that we should have a balanced Diet.
Unless it is due to health problem's and the body can't use it like people with milk allergy
