Boiling Eggs & Potatoes

  • Add the peeled potatoes into a large pot. Make sure all of the potatoes are covered with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  • Use another large pot and fill with water. Bring the water to a boil. Add the eggs and cook for 9 minutes. Once cooked briefly submerge the cooked eggs into a bowl of ice water. Remove from the bowl and once peel the eggs.


  • Combined mayonnaise, pickle juice, and mustard in a small bowl. Use a whisk and blend until well combined.

Putting The Salad Together

  • Chop the boiled potatoes and hard-boiled eggs into small bite-sized pieces. Chop the pickles into small pieces. Combine everything in a large salad bowl.
  • Add the dressing and combine well.



This is a great recipe if you're used to meal prepping. Both eggs and potatoes can be cooked ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
