Chunky Egg And Potato Salad With Pickles
This salad combines two beloved dishes — egg salad and potato salad — to create one creamy, savory dish! The hard-boiled eggs provide protein and healthy fats, while the potatoes add a rich and soft texture for the creamy layer of homemade mayonnaise and seasonings.

Boiling potatoes requires a delicate balance: overcooking will cause the potatoes to fall apart, while undercooking makes for a crunchy potato salad. To achieve a a perfectly boiled potato, be sure the potato can be easily pierced with a knife. Even though runny eggs are great for brunch, these eggs need to be hard-boiled, so 10-12 minutes of rolling boiled water will achieve a solid yolk. To speed up the process, you can cook the potatoes and eggs in their separate saucepans over the stove at the same time.

Fold the diced pickles and mayonnaise mixture into the hard-boiled eggs and potatoes and refrigerate until ready to eat. Serve with a bunless burger or grilled chicken for a tasty summer meal.
