You can add eggs to this salad (though I prefer it without eggs). Instructions: while waiting for potatoes and carrots to cook in step 2, place an egg in a small saucepan, cover with enough water and place on the stove. Turn on the heat and when the water starts boiling, reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 10 - 12 minutes for hard-boiled eggs. When time's up, remove the egg from the saucepan, set aside and let cool. Peel and cut the egg in half lengthwise, scoop out the yolk and add it to the mixing bowl. Cut the cooked egg white into small pieces and add them to the bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix well.
