Boil potatoes and carrots in skin (it helps to keep vitamins), then
cool them down and peel them. Boil eggs and boil meat. Chop potatoes,
carrots, eggs, meat dill pickles into 1/2 inches squares. Add green
peas and salt. Trust your own taste, everything must be in proportion.
Stir mayonnaise only for the part of salad you are going to eat. It
will be kept better without it. Mix the salad and refrigerate for a
while. If you want your salad a little tender, mix a part of
mayonnaise with an equal part of sour cream. Bon appetit!
