  • 1 lb potatoes — I use Yukon Gold
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dill pickles
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups peas
  • 2/3 cups chopped salami
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tsp vinegar — optional
  • salt + pepper to taste if needed


  1. Boil potatoes, peel and chop into small cubes.

  2. Boil peas until soft, or use canned instead. 

  3. Boil eggs, peel and chop into small cubes.

  4. Boil carrots, chop into small cubes. I like to leave them on the crunchier side, not too soft.

  5. Chop pickles and meat.

  6. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir to combine. Serve or cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
