Mayonnaise Salad

Today's delicatessen borrows from a multitude of food cultures. Nona's amazing flavors are favorites in quite a few homes

Mayonnaise Salad is a dish that Nona adopted from a neighboring kitchen, and with the years turned it into an integral part of the family salad lineup. We mainly serve it at the break fast meal, after breaking the fast, and at our traditional Passover brunch.

The recipe is taken from the book “Bendichas Manus [Blessed Hands] – Flavors from Nonna’s House” compiled by the grandchildren of the late Esther Raphael (née Vivanta) – Chaim, Revital, and Assaf – and carefully preserved by her daughter, Simcha Yosef.
