How To Make Traditional Potato Salad


Wash the potatoes and carrots

Pre-Preparation Tips

Add them to cold water in a large pot and bring them to a boil.



Boil the carrots and potatoes until they’re tender. I remove carrots earlier, to prevent overcooking, and let potatoes cook for a little longer, as they take longer to cook thoroughly.


While the cooked potatoes, carrots, and eggs are cooling, dice the bologna, pickles, cucumbers, and onions.
