I'm not giving any measurements since you make as much as you need,I go by how it looks,does it look like enough eggs? pimiento ?,etc, and by taste. I only use Best Food mayo,but use what you like.I prefer dill pickles but if you like sweet,go for it! For parties,I usually add grapes and chopped roasted pecans. Personally I don't care for them but lot's of people do. I like to add a bit of curry powder sometimes too.
This filling makes great sandwich or place in a lettuce cup or hollowed out tomato.
