Tossed Egg Salad

This is a fresh, simple salad from the Better Homes & Gardens red plaid 1968 cookbook.  It would be just as good and more colorful with some romaine and spinach instead of head lettuce.  We liked the easy-to-make dressing - I would think any favorite vinegar would be good.  If you use white vinegar, be sure to buy "all natural" vinegar.
Our really fresh farm eggs didn't slice as well as older eggs, but they tasted wonderful.
