Abi's Cuban Potato Salad

Updated on August 15, 2010

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.
