The flavoring: Stir in cup very finely grated onion. Not minced, chopped or sliced?grated. It should be liquidy (this is how they do it at Diner?s, a local eatery in Kalihi). The mayo: At least 2 cups for real local style. But there are no rules, so use less if you like. Or more. The add-ins: Carrots, watercress, celery, hard-boiled eggs, pickle relish?whatever suits you. The finale: Salt and pepper, to taste. Stir well; refrigerate.
