Instructions for an Easy Old Fashioned Potato Salad
First start by boiling the potatoes and eggs. I cut the potatoes in half and boil them for about 25 minutes. Or until a fork can easily puncture them. I boil the eggs for 15 minutes. sOnce cooked remove the peels and shells
Dice up the potatoes, eggs, cucumbers and pickles and combine them all together.
Add all ingredients to a bowl at once.
