This luscious juxtaposition of sliced tomatoes and hard-cooked egg with well-seasoned handmade mayonnaise reminds me of two classic old-school dishes. One is a traditional Russian salad, a mixture of cold cooked vegetables lightly bound with mayonnaise and sometimes spooned into halved tomatoes. The other is the French oeuf mayonnaise, the simple bistro standby of hard-cooked egg with mayonnaise and nothing more, except perhaps a lettuce leaf. When well made, both are sensational.
