6 boiling potatoes, cooked, peeled, and diced
2 carrots, boiled, peeled, and diced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 bunch fresh beets, boiled, skinned, and diced
1 can petit peas, drained and rinsed in cold water
3 hardboiled eggs, chopped
1 pint sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise or to taste
1-2 tsp. salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp. pepper, or to taste
1/2 – 1 tsp. sugar
Combine potatoes, carrots, onions, and eggs in a large bowl.
Blend ingredients for dressing. Add to potato/carrot/onion/egg mix, stirring gently. Next, carefully fold in the chopped beets, and then the peas.
Note: the beets and peas are added last to retain the individual flavor of each vegetable and to minimize handling of the fragile peas.
