  • 1 1/2 lbs potatoes
  • 1 lb beets
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 scallions (green/spring onions), chopped, for garnish
  1. In a large pot of water, boil potatoes until fork tender. Remove from the pot and immediately run with cold water to stop the cooking process.

  2. In a large pot of water, boil, beets until fork tender.

  3. In the same pot that you boiled the potatoes in, add the carrots and boil them for just a few minutes so they are no longer raw, but still crisp.

  4. As soon as vegetables are cool enough to handle, peel and dice. If you would like to ensure that the potatoes hold their shape, chill in the refrigerator for a few hours before peeling and dicing.

  5. In a large bowl, combine carrots, potatoes, beets, bell pepper and celery. Stir to combine.

  6. Add mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.

  7. To serve, garnish with scallions.

Recipe Notes
  1. If you would like to add a little heat, add a few drops of Picklese (Haitian hot sauce).
