Classic Egg Salad Recipe (Video)

This time I will make the basic, classic recipe, as is our family favourite.

How to prepare this recipe

 I made this classic Jewish recipe countless times, and I will keep making. 
I made it in all possible combinations: with tomatoes and cucumbers, with radishes, green onions and lettuce, with chicken breast, with grilled salmon, with mayonnaise. 
It is wonderful in any combination and is good both at room temperature and cold from the refrigerator, with or without vegetables like tomato, cucumber, salad as side dish etc.
