Abi's Cuban Potato Salad

This recipe came from my grandmother, who we call Abi.  At 90 she's still alive and doing great but no longer cooking.  The apples add a unique sweetness that most potato salads lack.  


6 large baking potatoes, cooked just to tender and cut in chunks

6 hard-boiled eggs, 5 diced and 1 sliced

1 apple, 3/4 diced and 1/4 sliced

1 can sweet peas

2 celery stalks, sliced

4 tbsp. mayonnaise

salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, diced eggs, diced apples, peas, celery, mayonnaise and seasonings.  Garnish the top with the apple and egg slices.  Cover and refrigerate 2 hours before serving.

Serves 8 to 10.

Another great recipe here. I have never heard of peas or apples in potato salad. Can't wait to try this one. I love to cook and try new recipes.
