Yield: spread for 6 sandwiches

This is just such a zestful onion salad sandwich as delighted that Yankee President, Calvin Coolidge. It is particularly good made with rye bread.


  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 3 hard cooked eggs
  • 2 small pickles
  • mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • salt and pepper


Chop the onion, eggs, and pickles fine and add enough mayonnaise to have a good spreading consistency, and mustard, salt, and pepper to taste. Spread lavishly. Serve with tomato wedges and ripe olives.
