  • 10 medium to large potatoes
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 4 oz. jar of diced pimientos, drained
  • 1 medium to large onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon whole celery seeds
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup mayonnaise more or less to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Boil potatoes with skins on, cool, peel, and cut into chunks. Boil eggs about five minutes, drain, cover with cold water. I usually put about a tablespoon of salt in my water that I boil the eggs in to make them peel better. Peel the boiled eggs, chop, and add to potatoes in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well and chill in refrigerator.
