Matt’s Mom’s Potato Salad

3 Feb


The first of the awesome polish recipes I will try to learn from Matt’s mom!

5 medium potatoes
3 medium or 2 large carrots
1 can of peas, or 1/2 a bag of frozen peas
3 large kosher pickles
2 hard boiled eggs
mustard (of your choice)

Peel the potatoes and carrots.

Cube the potatoes but leave the carrots whole.

Boil them in a large pot of water until tender, but sill firm.

In the meantime, hard boil the eggs.

When the potatoes and carrots are done, drain and set aside to cool (mix in the frozen peas a this point to help cool).

Once cool, cube the carrots and add back to the potatoes.

Cube the pickles and add to the mix.

When the eggs are done, cube and add to the mix.

Season the whole mixture with plenty of salt and pepper, then add in mayo and some mustard for taste, to get the right consistency.

Transfer to a large bowl and refrigerate.

*This makes a HUGE serving, enough to last 2 people for about 4-5 days.
