  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Finely chop the hard-cooked eggs and the pickles.
  3. When they're cool enough to handle, cube the potatoes and transfer them to a 9x13-inch dish. Stir in the chopped eggs, pickles, mayonnaise, mustard, and the peas and carrots and mix gently to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or refrigerate the salad before serving.


  • Editor's Note
  • Israeli-style pickles are brined in saltwater rather than a vinegar solution, and are made with small finger-sized cucumbers.

Hi All - This is the original recipe poster, here. Just a note about the Israeli pickles - these are NOT Kosher pickles. They are usually imported from Israel, or they are noted as Israeli-sty...

This is very similar to the Ukrainian "Mayonnaise" version of the salad, which my sister and I refer to as the "Cube" salad because everything has to be cubed such that all the salad pieces are ...

Love this! It's great alternative to regular ol' potato salad. And being I've never been a fan of celery, like that this still has the crunch from the pickles. Yummy stuff!

I thought this potato salad was good. I liked the extra color the carrots and peas gave to it. I used Kraft mayo with olive oil and dijon mustard, as it was what I had. The only downside is the ...
